Hundreds of new homes planned for Nottinghamshire village

A Nottinghamshire village is preparing for hundreds more homes to be built in the area.

A total of 461 new homes are planned for the picturesque village of Langold, north of Worksop.

The area has a population of about 3,000 people – and the area is now gearing up to welcome new residents.

Bassetlaw District Council approved plans for applicant Barratt Homes to build 296 homes off Chestnut Road earlier this year.

The site will provide two, three and four-bedroom homes, 15 per cent of which will be affordable.

Separate plans for 165 new homes by Gleesons were approved for the site in 2021, and some of these homes are now for sale.

Some concerns were raised by residents over waiting lists at the nearby Bassetlaw Hospital before the plans were approved.

Councillor Gillian Freeman (Lab), who sits on Langold Parish Council said:

“We want the new homes here because people would like more bungalows in the area.

“There will be a percentage of affordable housing and a football field as well.

“We are getting new houses all over as part of the government’s plans.

“This site was marked for housing two or three years ago now.

“It’s good because it will hopefully bring more shops and business to the area.

“But this will be the last development here.

“Langold will celebrate 100 years next year.

“I’m very proud of this village, I’ve had hard times but we keep going.”

The parish of Langold was created in 1923 to provide housing for the miners of Firbeck Colliery.

Work has not yet started on the development.
