 HMOs in Netherfield and car wash plan for Carlton turned down by Gedling Borough Council planning committee

A number of controversial planning applications were rejected yesterday at a meeting of the Gedling Borough Council planning committee.

Plans for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) in Netherfield and a car wash in Carlton which had been submitted for approval were turned down during the meeting held virtually which can be watched online:

A plan had been submitted to construct a car wash on derelict land on Burton Road in Carlton next to the Inn For a Penny pub but this was rejected during the call.

Councillor Peter Barnes told the committee:”It’s not the right place for it. It’s not the right place for this kind of business and I can’t support this.”

Councillor Barbara Miller said: “An awful lot of people use the recreational ground and this isn’t ideal; they should plant some trees and support climate change.”

14 councillors rejected the amendment to a previous planning application and one supported it.

Two planning applications to create HMOs in Netherfield were also rejected.

Parking was a major concern raised by residents and councillors on the call.

Plans had been submitted to create an HMO on Meadow Road in Netherfield and also on Ashwell Street.

A statement was read our by local resident Clare Selwood.

She wrote “Netherfield doesn’t have a great external reputation but there is a great sense of community.”

She said that the fact that the planning officer was recommending is rthat that residents use a nearby public car park if space was ‘hilarious’

Both applications were quickly turned down by councillors.

The HMOs could still still go ahead but on a smaller scale than the developers wanted.

  • We totally agree with the vote regarding the car was in Burton Road, Gedling and the vote against the Netherfield plan, we are trying to get a community spirit around Netherfield etc, and make the area more family orientated. Thank you.
