200 new homes on Nottingham farmland
Plans to build as many as 200 homes on farmland in Nottinghamshire have been deferred over concerns with two of the proposed houses.
The development, on Blidworth Lane in Rainworth, has already been granted outline planning permission, meaning the homes have been agreed upon in principle.
The original proposal could lead to 200 properties built on the farmland, with 10 per cent or 20 of the homes to be marketed as ‘affordable’.
However, some councillors asked whether the development could be reduced down to 198 properties so the two affecting plots do not impact existing houses.
The committee was told it would not be able to reduce the homes during the meeting, with the previous outline planning permission granted for 200 homes.
The development was deferred for further consultation and conversation about the two plots, with conversations to be held between affected residents and the developer.
