Gedling Borough Council is set to meet its target of building 7,250 homes by 2028, it has been revealed.

Almost all of the houses which need to be built before 2028 have already been given permission.

The largest of these is the Chase Farm development on the former Gedling Colliery, where around 1,050 houses will be built.

Councillor Jenny Hollingsworth is the portfolio holder for growth and regeneration at Gedling Borough Council, and represents the Gedling ward for Labour.

She said their plan would “allow us to provide much-needed new homes, encourage economic growth and support regeneration”.

The total each area has to built is specified in a complex legal document called a Local Plan, which has to be approved by the Government.

The Gedling Local Plan was formally approved in the last few weeks.

Councillor Hollingsworth said: “The Local Planning Document addresses the key planning issues in Gedling borough and sets out a clear and locally distinctive vision for the future development of the borough.

“Thanks must go to our planning policy officers who have worked tirelessly to get this document adopted and to the residents who have had their say on what is, a hugely significant and important document that sets out the future development of the borough.”

“Here we’ve outlined the areas in each part of Nottinghamshire where the houses will be built, as well as where the biggest new developments will be.”

Some areas across Nottinghamshire already have their local plans in place, while others are still being drawn up.

In numbers: A total of 7,250 homes will be built across the borough as part of the council’s plans by 2028, though many of these have already been given planning permission, and some are already being built. These include the Chase Farm development, which will have around 1,050 houses.
