Plans to build 42 new homes on land at Hill Farm House in Edwalton have been approved by Rushcliffe Borough Council.
Housebuilder Bellway is now starting work on the site, off Melton Road, with the first homes anticipated to be released for sale early next year.
Twelve of the homes being built will be affordable housing to enable local people and key workers to live in a new-build home within their own community.
In addition to the 42 new homes being built, the development will also feature two barn conversions.
Carolyne Watkinson, Sales Director for Bellway East Midlands, said: “We are delighted to have received planning permission for our new homes in Edwalton.
“The development will help to deliver much-needed new homes to this part of Nottinghamshire and we have worked closely with the local authority to ensure they will suit the requirements of local buyers.
“We will be offering a range of homes suitable for people at all stages of the property ladder, from first-time buyers and downsizers to families in need of extra space.
“We’re looking forward to releasing the first properties for sale early next year and will be providing further updates as work progresses.”
As part of the planning agreement for the development, Bellway will contribute more than £70,000 towards improvements to the A52, as well as more than £600,000 towards infrastructure and facilities in the wider area.
