New homes are set to be added to the Chase Farm estate after an application from Nottingham City Council was approved.
The new properties will form part of a 1,000-home development based on a six acre site between Arnold Lane and Mapperley Plains, in Mapperley.
Unlike the rest of the houses, these homes will not be built by Keepmoat Homes. The applicant for the planning permission was Nottingham City Council.
The authority wants to build 46 homes on and around the site and it will be access through the Gedling Access Road.
Planning officers at Gedling Borough Council recommended the scheme be approved.
A report on the issue said: “Development of the site for residential purposes would be seen as a logical extension to the existing built form.
“The principle of development in this location is supported subject to the above criteria being satisfied.
“The site has significant variations in ground levels, which will in part dictate how development could take place.
“However, the indicative layout plan submitted demonstrates that residential development could be accommodated on the site in keeping with the adjacent residential development on Clementine Drive.”
Exact details of how the homes will look has not yet been finalised. The planning permission is ‘outline’, meaning the scheme has been approved in principle.
A further planning application will now be needed to work out specifics of the development.
The city council says now outline planning permission has been obtained, it will undertake a tendering process to find developers for the land.
Labour councillor Jenny Hollingsworth is the portfolio holder for growth and regeneration, and represents the Gedling ward.
She said: “Councillors approved outline planning permission for residential development with 20 percent of the build being affordable homes.
“This site has come forward due to the delivery of the new Gedling Access Road which will provide access close to Mapperley Plains.
“The road is a key infrastructure that will unlock the delivery of much needed new homes and help drive sustainable housing growth in the borough.”
