Terra Strategic’s plans for 85 new homes in Cropwell Bishop, Nottinghamshire, have been approved by Rushcliffe Borough Council.

The news comes despite a significant number complaints from the public including concerns over congestion, flood risks, loss of Greenfield land, and the development’s impact on a primary school and local facilities.

The new homes would be built on land to the north east of Springfield Close. The site is currently used for arable purposes and sits between enclosed pieces of land, a school, and sewage treatment plant.

The residential development would consist of a mix of one to four bedroom homes, ranging in height from single to two storey.

24 four bed homes, 32 three bed properties, 21 two bed dwellings and 8 one bed houses would be provided.
