Plans have been lodged for 136 new homes on the site of a former factory in a Nottinghamshire village.
The Bilsthorpe site was once home to Noble Foods Ltd, an egg processing factory which ceased trading on-site in August 2015.
The factory in Kirklington Road was demolished in 2016 and the site is now allocated for housing by Newark and Sherwood District Council.
In an planning application lodged on July 12, Harron Homes, said: “Our vision is to create a safe and welcoming new neighbourhood that contributes positively to the character of the area.
“The development will provide a variety of new homes and contribute to local
infrastructure meeting local needs as well as the needs of people
wanting to move into the area.
“The proposed housing mix of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom properties has been
prepared as a response to local need and demand.
“The design delivers a safe and attractive environment, a desirable place that will stand the test of time and that people will be proud of and want to inhabit for many years to come. The development will make a positive addition to
Bilsthorpe and a vital contribution to the local housing needs.”
More than 100 people were consulted over the plans and letters will be sent out to residents “encouraging comments” on the application.
Outline planning permission for the site was granted in 2020 – meaning that “that the development of the site for housing is appropriate”.
The application will now come before Newark and Sherwood District Council’s Planning Committee later this year.
