Plans have gone in for 335 homes which could form part of a new £800 million neighbourhood on the outskirts of Nottingham.
Urban design company IDP and highways design firm Patrick Parsons has submitted a design statement for the new homes on the vast Fairham development, which will form ‘phase three’ of the masterplan for the area.
They are acting on behalf of national housebuilder Countryside Properties, which is described as the “UK’s leading mixed-tenure developer specialising in building communities”.
Eventually up to 3,000 homes will be built on the Fairham site, which could become what some have called “a second West Bridgford”.
It is located to the south of Clifton, off the A453 Remembrance Way, near the village of Barton-in-Fabis.
The overall scheme will be completed in phases over a 15-year period and details of the latest phase have been revealed this month.
In a statement the developer says: “The phase three site is a gateway parcel into the wider development and is likely to be one of the first residential phases to be delivered.
“The proposed massing is predominantly two-storeys in height.
“Three storey corner apartments blocks punctuate the south western edge with a series of two-and-a-half storey units positioned in between.
“Whilst four storey massing is permissible this would generally require increased apartment provision which was not considered feasible from a commercial perspective.”
According to the plans, the 335 homes will be built just off Nottingham Road, near the Clifton park and ride and Silbury Close, at the entrance to the Fairham site.
The developer says the homes will be available for rent and private sale, while a portion will be designated affordable.
The statement adds: “In total we are proposing 335 new homes ranging from one bedroom maisonettes to large four bedroom family houses.
“Whilst the outline approval requires a minimum of 10% of the homes to be affordable, local planning policy for Rushcliffe Borough Council requires 30%, which more closely equates to our 100 units out of 335 overall.”
It is the third developer to submit plans for the 606-acre site.
Redrow East Midlands recently submitted a planning application to Rushcliffe Borough Council for 93 new homes on the first phase of the development, situated off Nottingham Road to the north.
