Green light recommended for more than 100 homes


The development of more than 100 homes in Brinsley, Nottinghamshire, has been recommended for the green light.Barratt and David Wilson Homes are seeking the go-ahead from Broxtowe Borough Council to construct 115 residential properties on land to the rear of Brinsley Recreation Ground on Church Lane.The scheme comprises a mixture of one-bedroom maisonettes and two, three and four-bed houses. 35 of the proposed properties will be allocated as affordable housing.The homes will largely be two storeys, with a small number having a level within the roof space. Off road parking is provided for all dwellings.This application was brought before the planning committee on 17 March 2021. At this meeting the committee raised concerns about the level of section 106 contributions which was not considered sufficient, the use of private roads within the site, and the number of proposed dwellings. A decision was made to defer the application to allow the applicant to address these matters.However, Barratt and David Wilson Homes have not made any amendments to the application. The concerns raised by the members of the planning committee will be addressed further in a meeting on 21 April.The proposed development will have a main road running through the site, with secondary roads leading off from this. There will be two private drives serving a number of properties, and bin collection points have been provided for residents.
