Plans revealed for 340 new homes in Bestwood


Plans to build 340 new homes on two sites in Bestwood have been revealed.

Nottingham City Homes (NCH) is proposing to build the homes on the former Padstow School site in xxxxx and on the Ridgeway playing field.

They say the development will be a mix of homes for sale, rent and social rent across both sites.

A spokesman for Nottingham City Homes said: “Nottingham City Homes is in the early stages of developing a master plan for the development of the former Padstow School site and the Ridgeway playing field

“There is a shortage of family housing in the city and only a limited amount of space available on which to build.

“NCH would build carefully designed, energy efficient, generously proportioned, exceptional quality homes for families to live and grow.”

The firm are now keen to get views from the local community about the proposals and have organised three drop-in sessions to share the plans and let people have their say.

The first session will take place on Tuesday, August 15 at Bestwood Estate Community Centre in Gainsford Crescent between 4pm and 6.45pm.

The second drop-in session will take place on Tuesday, August 22 at Bestwood Park Community Centre on Beckhampton Road between 4pm and 6.45pm.

  1. NCH and the council have done everything they can to keep this quiet as there is so much opposition to the development of the Ridgeway site. These so called consultations are just an exercise in selling as they have no interest in the communities opinions. The forms on hand to fill in are a questionnaire on what sort of property you would be interested in purchasing!!
