Bloor Homes has recently submitted a detailed planning application for 222 new homes, including 54 affordable homes to be located off Bunny Lane on the western edge of Keyworth.
The submission of the planning application follows public consultation with the local community in 2013 and more recently at a one-day public exhibition in Keyworth Village Hall in July this year.
A range of house-types, including 24 bungalows and detached, semi-detached and town houses have been proposed.
Developers say they will “offer a choice from small starter homes and homes for the elderly to larger three and four-bedroom family houses”,
The proposal includes a 20% provision of affordable properties for rent or shared ownership.
The development site off Bunny Lane is one of three preferred locations for new homes in Keyworth that are included in the recently approved Keyworth Neighbourhood Development Plan that went to a village referendum at the end of May.
“We have been encouraged by the positive feedback on our plans from local people and the parish council,” said Max Whitehead, planning director for Bloor Homes East Midlands.
“We have engaged widely with local people and with the local authorities and we were able to amend our plans in response to comments made by local residents about various aspects of the scheme shown in July.”
Funding from the development towards wider community infrastructure such as education, health and highways will be made to the relevant local authorities through S106 legal agreement mechanisms.
The planning application will be considered by Rushcliffe Officers and Councillors. Details of the detailed application can be seen online: https://planningon-line.rushcliffe.gov.uk/online-applications/ At the Planning – Simple Search section, enter reference: 18/02515/FUL.
Should planning consent be granted by the council at some time in the new year, construction work would start in the summer of 2019, with the first new occupations towards the latter part of 2019.
