Fears calmed over change of plan

BROXTOWE Borough Council leader Milan Radulovic has calmed fears over the area’s greenbelt land after plans for an 800-house development in Toton was scrapped.

The development was one of several proposed for the Broxtowe borough in a recent housing development plan, but now it has been withdrawn councillors in Kimberley were worried the number of houses already allocated for the north of borough would dramatically increase.

Broxtowe borough councillor Ken Rigby claims planners at the authority have been asked to ‘re-look at the numbers and see if there was any land they had missed’ – leaving councillors convinced this simply means the figure will be distributed across other towns in the borough including Eastwood, Kimberley and surrounding areas.
