More homes planned for East Leake as CCG finds search for new health centre site ‘challenging’

There are plans for 47 new homes to form part of a major East Leake housing development.

Developer David Wilson Homes has applied to Rushcliffe Borough Council to build the properties at the Rempstone Road development in East Leake.

A brand new primary school is also planned as part of the large housing estate, which will open its doors in 2023.

While the new school is being built, a temporary school will be in place to educate children in East Leake.

Councillors previously expressed concerns over the plans which could “cause chaos” at drop-off and pick-up times.

The council previously approved plans for 51 homes on the site, but a fresh application has lowered that number to 47 after discussions with the landowner.

The developer already has detailed planning approval for 235 homes on the land.

Of the 47 new builds which form the latest plans, six would be two bedrooms, 23 would be three bedrooms and eight homes would be four bedrooms or more.

There would also be nine two and three-bedroom affordable homes.

The local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has also requested a section 106 contribution of £43,240 to reduce the impact on the existing community.

The CCG said in planning documents: “East Leake Medical Practice would be most impacted by this development.

“The existing facility is sub-standard and over-capacity given the recent housing developments and further housing permissions.

“The building is one of the top priorities to replace. The search for a suitable site for a new facility is proving challenging to the CCG. Any contribution for this development would be put towards replacing the current facility ”
