Major West Bridgford mixed-use scheme recommended for approval

The green light has been recommended for a major mixed-use scheme in West Bridgford.

The plans from Wilford Lane Developments Limited for land on Wilford Lane involve the construction of retail units, a coffee shop, pub and supermarket as well as five accommodation blocks, four of which would contain residential accommodation (204 residential apartments) and the fifth of which would be a retirement complex of 63 apartments.

Part of the 9-acre site was formerly occupied by The Chateau restaurant, which has been demolished, its associated car park, and a disused rifle range.
A document from Rushcliffe Borough Council reads: “The proposal would bring a vacant brownfield site in a key sustainable location back into use providing some much needed housing in the Borough, which would contribute towards the Council’s Housing Land Supply, and provide policy compliant level affordable housing on site.
“The proposal would also generate a level of employment. Technical issues relating to highway safety, flood risk, noise, contamination and ecology can all be mitigated through the imposition of conditions. The application does propose the loss of some of the existing protected trees on the site, and whilst officers have sought to retain as many as possible, the application does nevertheless propose the loss of mature specimen tree on the site’s frontage. However, the application does also proposes the planting of significantly greater number of new trees along the Wilford Land frontage of the site, within the proposed car parking area and at the entrance to the site from Beckett Way.”
