Councillors urgent call for comments

Nuthall Parish Council is calling a meeting to urge residents to have their say on housing plans.

The public consultation for new housing development ends on July 23 and Nuthall councillors say if residents do not mkae their views known now, it will be to late.

Council clerk Sue Stack said: “We urge all residents to attend this meeting as we recognise that this could be their last chance to have a say in the planning process for the next 15 yhears.”

Broxtowe Borougn Council gave the go ahead for 6,150 houses to be built in the borough in the next 15 years, and many of them will be on greenbelt.

“What we do know is that greenbelt sites will form part of the proposed locations when they are released and with sites such as Woodhouse Way, New Farm Lane, Broxtowe Country park, Strelley and surrounding areas, we are at risk of having no say over the final decisions,” said Ms Stack.

The meeting will be on July 7 at 2pm at the Temple Centre in Nottingham Road.

MP Anna Soubry will be there and there will be copies of the submission forms available for completion and advice on how to submit forms online.
