Plans to demolish Abbey Road Depot and develop housing have been passed.
The plans were passed on 18th June for the demolition of existing buildings, and a residential development with associated landscaping, infrastructure and access points from Abbey Road and Buckfast Way (outline with all matters reserved except access).
As part of Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Local Plan Part 2 – up to 50 new homes will be built on the council site on Abbey Road in West Bridgford.
The Local Plan sets out that there will be a minimum of 13,150 homes between 2011 and 2028 (774 per annum), which will increase Rushcliffe’s housing stock from 47,350 in 2011 to 60,500 in 2028 (28% increase).
Rushcliffe waste teams moved from the depot in May 2019 to join Nottingham City Council in a shared facility at Eastcroft.
