Plans have recently been revealed to add a further 191 homes to a multi-million pound neighbourhood in Edwalton where hundreds of houses have already been built. Developers submitted the fresh plans to Rushcliffe Borough Council to construct the next big phase of Edwalton Park.
People have already moved into the vast estate, built by several developers, located off Melton Road. The further development extends from an area north of Wheatcroft’s Garden Centre to the east of Sharphill Wood.
Max Whitehead, planning director at Bloor Homes Midlands, said: “Bloor Homes’ Edwalton Park development is a collection of three and four-bedroom homes in the attractive suburb of Edwalton.
“Phase one of the development, for which planning has already been approved, will see the construction of 135 homes. Construction at the site is well underway, with almost half of the homes here now sold.
“We are pleased to submit a further application for planning to Rushcliffe Borough Council for the next phase of development. Our Edwalton Park development has proved popular with local people keen to move to this attractive suburb.
“Our vision for Edwalton Park is to create a modern development which delivers much-needed new homes in an attractive setting with easy access to local amenities.
The latest properties will range from having one to four bedrooms and up to 30 percent will be affordable. Land east and west of Melton Road was allocated to Rushcliffe Borough Council’s local plan for around 1,500 homes altogether, along with a community centre and communal facilities. Full planning permission has been granted for 971 homes, an additional 600 properties are in the outline planning permission.
The area of Edwalton is hugely popular, the new residents will benefit in the thriving area from highly rated schooling and a range of leisure amenities. Recently, plans for a new McDonalds at the Wheatcroft Island have been revealed along with a £5.3m primary school in the area.
