Have a say on proposed new housing sites put forward by council


People across the borough are being invited to have their say on proposals to build extra houses on a number of sites across the area.

Gedling Borough Council has selected seven sites which could be used for additional housing. The sites, if approved, would be added to the Local Planning Document – which is currently being examined by an independent planning inspector.

The following additional sites selected have been selected:

  • Site X1 – Daybrook Laundry, Daybrook – 50 homes
  • Site X2 – Land West of A60 A, Redhill – 70 homes
  • Site X3 – Land West of A60 B, Redhill – 150 homes
  • Site X4 – Flatts Lane, Calverton – 60 homes
  • Site X5 – Kighill Lane A, Ravenshead – 20 homes
  • Site X6 – Kighill Lane B, Ravenshead – 30 homes

A number of drop-in sessions have now been organised and will give local residents the chance to have their say on the proposals.
