PLANNING APPROVED: Planners give green light for five new build properties to rear of Scotgrave Farmhouse in Gedling

The farmhouse and surrounding lands sits adjacent to the newly built Chase Farm estate.


Plans to construct five dwellings to the rear of Scotgrave Farmhouse, Arnold Lane, Gedling, NG4 4HF have been granted conditional permission following consideration by Gedling Borough Council planners.

The application submitted by MNCN Architecture Limited acting as agent on behalf of Darley Developments Limited of London was formally granted permission in a decision notice dated May 31, 2024.

The proposed development includes the demolition of existing out-buildings and the construction of four semi-detached two storey residential dwellings with associated out-buildings (garages) as well as hard and soft landscaping areas and one detached bungalow.

Four objections were received by adjoining neighbours during the consultation period which included:

- Advertisement -
  • The impact of the building a boundary fence above the existing boundary wall,
    with a total height of approximately 2.13 metres and whether this wall would
    structurally be able to support this.
  • Increase in noise with cars and outdoor activity
  • The proposed development would give neighbours the feeling of being boxed
    in and would have an overbearing impact.
  • The driveway is too narrow with insufficient room for delivery vehicles and for
    vehicles to turn to enter and leave the site in a forward gear.
  • The access is likely to represent a highway safety issue with cars speeding on
    Arnold Lane.
  • Should plans be agreed despite objections, working hours should be restricted
    including no work on weekends, no radios, no shouting or foul language.
  • Impact on the mental health of nearby residents.
  • There have been vehicle accidents on Arnold Lane since the previous
    approval so the highway safety situation has changed since the previous
    application was determined.
  • The site is too small for this many houses.
  • Potential for debris in gardens.

A letter recommending the granting of conditional planning permission dated May 23, 2024 and authorised by Service Manager Development Services / Principal Planning Officer on May 31, 2024 stated that ‘Initially the Local Highway Authority raised concerns about the proposed development, particularly in relation to the width of the shared driveway, visibility splays and space for turning on the site. However, the proposal has now been amended to address these concerns, with the exception of there being more than 5 dwellings accessed from a private drive. The Local Highway Authority have now raised no objections.’

The proposal includes tarmacadam vehicle access with block paved driveways with the proposed number of on-site parking spaces including existing totalling 12.

A prior planning application in 2019 to erect four detached properties (application no. 2019/0852) was granted conditional permission on January 16, 2020 however the development was not proceeded with.
