Plans for 71 new homes on Abbey Road in West Bridgford have secured a unanimous Reserved Matters Approval from Rushcliffe Borough Council.
The no-gas housing development will sit on the Central Works Depot site, which was previously used primarily as the Borough Council’s depot for the storage of refuse freighters, vehicle maintenance and the storage of some recyclables.
Stagfield Group and Peveril Homes are behind the new scheme, which will include 21 affordable homes for Futures Housing Group.
The development, which is to feature energy systems and Smart living technology to assist homeowners to control their lifestyle and energy consumption, is estimated to deliver in excess of 50% CO2 reduction compared to building regulations, which is significantly higher than the enhanced standard target of 19% CO2 reduction for the scheme.
A supporting statement accompanying the submission said: “The design and layout is sympathetic to the existing locality yet creates a contemporary and high-quality new urban environment which encourages walking and cycling to local facilities.”
