Meetings over housing plans

A SERIES of public meetings are being held for Broxtowe residents to see plans for new homes in and around the borough.

The Council needs to identify new sites for housing to accommodate 6,126 new homes by 2028.

Approximately half of these new homes would need to be built outside existing urban areas with the majority of these in the Green Belt.

A combined total of 1,250 homes could be provided on two strategic sites at Toton Lane, between Toton and Stapleford and Field Farm, north of Ilkeston Road, Stapleford with the remainder to be provided in other areas of the borough.

A meeting takes place tonight for residents of North Stapleford at Pastures Road Community Church at 7pm. A meeting for Trowell residents takes place on Wednesday September 14 at Trowell Parish Hall from 7.45pm.
