The public are set to be consulted on the draft local plan next month despite councillors not being ‘100 per cent happy’ with the 8,226-home document.

The document outlines the authority’s plan for housing and wider development until 2038, including two major ‘new settlements’ to bring 4,000 homes – 3,000 properties at Whyburn Farm, Hucknall, and 1,000 homes off Cauldwell Road, Sutton, on the Mansfield-Ashfield border.

Coun Jason Zadrozny, council leader, said: “There’s no getting away from the fact this plan is controversial, because some people don’t want to see changes [to their communities].

Up to 149 homes could be built on land next to the Bull & Butcher pub in Selston.

“But I feel our cross-party working group, and the portfolio holder, have done a significant amount of work to steer this in a more positive way.

“It’s fair to say we’re not 100 per cent happy with it, but that’s why we want to make sure [the consultation] is done.

“This isn’t a plan we’re hoisting on people, we want to ask the public what they think so we can make any changes.”

The plan includes 541 homes in the Kirkby area, 3,004 in the Sutton area and a further 498 homes in the Selston and Jacksdale area.

Coun Jason Zadrozny, Ashfield Council leader.
