Plans to build 164 homes on Mapperley and Arnold border expected to get green light


Permission to build 164 new homes on the Arnold and Mapperley border is expected to be granted this week.

Leicester-based firm Davidsons Homes has submitted proposals for the new development on land to the west of Mapperley Plains and Catfoot Lane.

The new homes plan is expected to be approved when Gedling Borough Council‘s planning committee meet this Wednesday (January 15).

Documents reveal that 49 of the 164 houses being constructed would be low-cost properties and these would be a mix of both rented and shared ownership properties.

As well as housing, a new roundabout is also being proposed directly opposite Catfoot Lane to help accommodate extra traffic the development would attract.

The site was previously Green Belt but became an allocated housing
site following the adoption of the Local Planning Document in July 2018.

If approval is granted, the building schedule is expected to last three and a a half years.
