Following the approval of planning permission, hundreds of new houses will be built on a plot of land in Calverton. The land to the north of Park Road and Collyer Road, will now see a mixture of two-to-five-bedroom homes built. After planning permission was approved by Gedling Borough Council, contributions will be made by developers Persimmon Homes for bus service provision, and school places.
The application had originally been for 430 homes, with land to the north of the plot included in the first application. This second plot of land could have included a road through to provide access onto Oxton Road, the B6386. But instead, the second plot was safeguarded, meaning it can be used for a future application. This meant the access road for the new estate couldn’t be built through to Oxton Road, and will have to come through the primarily-residential streets of Collyer Road and Park Road, to the south.
