Plans for 351 new homes in Calverton could get go-ahead this week


A developer will find out if their plans for more than 350 new homes in Calverton can go ahead at a council meeting on Wednesday.

Persimmon Homes has submitted the plans for the new housing on land off Park Road in the village.

Gedling Borough Council is expected to approve the planning application at a meeting on Wednesday (September 9)

The application is for 351 dwellings, 70 of which will be affordable, with a split of 49 social rent and 21 intermediate housing e.g. shared ownership.

The dwellings to be erected will be a mixture of two and two and a half-storeys in scale, ranging from two to four bed.

There will be access points proposed for vehicles , one from Park Road and the other from Collyer Road, along with four small private drives from Park Road.

Plans will go before Gedling Borough Council on Wednesday

The main access will be that from Park Road, which is proposed to be the primary road into the site at 6.75m wide with a footway on either side, which would extend to the boundary of the safe guarded land to the immediate north.

The report also noted that a footpath, which runs through the site will have to be diverted once construction begins.

The local planning recommendation is to grant approval, subject to the imposition of conditions.
