Plan for 450 homes put in

A HOUSING developer has asked for outline planning permission to build 450 homes on greenfield land between Stapleford and Trowell.

W. Westermans’ masterplan for the site, available to view online, shows two proposed access roads to the Field Farm site and a route just for cyclists and pedestrians, all off Ilkeston Road.

As agreed with Broxtowe borough councillor Ken Rigby, the firm has not submitted plans to build on the Trowell section on the west of the site, leaving an area of farmland in the village undeveloped.

Westermans has also included plans to plant woodland to the east and the north of the site and retain an existing footpath near the railway line.
