Planning: Five detached properties planned for farm in Calverton

Three five bedroom and two four bedroom residential properties, each with two associated garage spaces and a minimum of 2 parking spaces are proposed.


An application has been received by Gedling Borough Council from Mr Graham Bradford of The Planning and Development Studio, Chesterfield acting as agent on behalf of Mr Rod Graham for a residential development at Whitehaven Farm, Mansfield Lane, Calverton, NG14 6HP.

The application describes the proposed works as ‘Demolition of existing buildings for residential development of five detached dwellings, garages and curtilages, improvement of existing private access track to Mansfield Lane and demolition and repositioning of a detached garage to Whitehaven Farm (house) to provide bespoke bat roost mitigation measures.’

A design and access statement prepared by Bruce Bradley, Architect in support of the full planning application states that there are five detached dwellings proposed: three X five bedroom and two X four bedroom residential properties, each has two associated garage spaces and a minimum of 2 parking spaces proposed.

Planning documents advise that the site is on the edge the village of Calverton which is predominately residential in character with some areas of light industrial units. The application site is rectangular and is currently occupied by an extensive range of large farm buildings that have remained in various uses until recently, but which are deteriorating and not fit to repurpose.

The current site has parking for 30 cars which will be reduced to 20 as per planning application documents.

Planning documents also advise that the proposals seek to positively address the issues arising from the on-going deterioration of a previously developed site in the Green Belt where substantial structures continue to have a negative effect on the immediate
landscape and where significant protected species habitat is at risk should further redevelopment of the site not be secured.

As part of the proposals the existing domestic garage of the applicant which stands to the south of the application site will be demolished and rebuilt to enable a high level of bat roost mitigation to be incorporated by design within its bespoke roof void.

Full planning details can be accessed on Planning Application No.2023/0728 HERE.
