Consultants Pegasus Group secured planning permission to build on the land at Newtons Lane on behalf of Harworth Group PLC.

The proposals have been in place for many years and attempts have been made previously to halt them, with concerns being raised over traffic congestion.

This led to the decision being deferred until Wednesday, June 2, when they were approved by Broxtowe Borough Council.

Guy Longley, executive director at Pegasus Group’s East Midlands office, said: “We are pleased that the planning committee followed the advice of officers and granted outline permission for the proposed development.

“Considerable stakeholder and community engagement work was carried out both through the promotion of the site through the Local Plan process and the subsequent planning application.”

Joanne Neville, planning manager at Harworth Group, said: “We are pleased to receive this positive outcome from Broxtowe’s Planning Committee.

"Our application is the culmination of several years of planning promotion and technical due diligence throughout the preparation of the local plan and the submission of the planning application.

“We now intend to market the site to housebuilders, once the S106 is completed, so that this well-connected site can start to deliver housing for the borough of Broxtowe.”
