Plans for a mixed use development at Hucknall Town Football Club have been recommended for approval.

The application, from Bolsover Properties, seeks permission to construct 108 homes and 2.500 sqm of business floorspace on the 3.3ha site.

The existing Hucknall Town Football Club ground would be demolished to make way for the development. A replacement for the ground has been approved.

A council document released ahead of the final decision reads: “The proposal will not result in any negative highway concerns and addresses sustainability issues with the delivery of contributions towards education and health requirements as well as public open space and regeneration.

“It will thus deliver housing in the future and will contribute to the need for housing.”
