433 new homes set to be approved on Nottinghamshire colliery site

Major plans to transform part of the old Gedling Colliery site are moving ahead as councillors are expected to approve layout and scale plans next week.

Developer Keepmoat Homes is looking for councillors to approve the access, appearance, landscaping, layout, and scale of its development.

This is a reserved matters application, which means outline planning approval has already been given for the 433 homes on land at Chase Farm, adjacent to Arnold Lane and land off Lambley Lane.

The application site covers two distinct areas.

Firstly, the larger area on which it is proposed to build 400 homes forms part of the Chase Farm development and lies between the Gedling Access Road (GAR) and Arnold Lane.

Secondly, a much smaller area of land on which it is proposed to build 33 homes, accessed off Lambley Lane close to a recently constructed roundabout off the Gedling Access Road.

Both areas within the application site benefit from outline planning permission,  with full planning permission granted for 506 homes, with up to 1,050 homes proposed in total, along with a local centre, shops, health centre and primary school.

Matters under consideration as part of this reserved matters application are for access, appearance, landscaping, layout, and scale.

In support of this application, a wide range of drawings have been submitted, including various house types, landscape drawings, highway details and overall site layout.

For the larger site of 400 homes, there will be 357 on the open market and 43 affordable housing units.

The smaller, 33 home development, would be on the open market. There is a combination of one to five-bedroom homes as part of the developments.

Planning officers have recommended that councillors approve the application when they meet on Wednesday, March 30.

The report to councillors states: “The layout, scale and appearance of the development as proposed would respect the character of the area and residential amenity.

“The impact on the highway network would be acceptable and adequate parking would be provided. Affordable housing provision would comply with the outline permission and the landscape scheme is considered to be broadly acceptable.”
