Plans for housing development at former recycling depot approved

Plans for the construction of up to 76 new homes at a Rushcliffe Borough Council owned depot in the sought after Nottingham suburb of West Bridgford have been approved.

The site’s existing buildings will be demolished.

The site has been used as a recycling depot for the past four decades, but the service has now relocated to Eastcroft depot close to Nottingham’s London Road.

The site is currently up for sale. Buyers have until noon on Wednesday 19th June (today) to submit offers for the 4.7 acre site which is situated 0.5 miles from West Bridgford’s town centre and three miles outside of Nottingham. It is bound to the north, south and west by existing homes and Abbey Road Primary School and West Bridgford allotments are situated to the east.

Ann Taylor, development director at Savills Nottingham, said: “The redevelopment of the Abbey Road depot will create an exciting new community in the highly regarded neighbourhood of West Bridgford. The scheme will aim to provide high quality modern homes and open space to create a fully integrated new community within walking distance of West Bridgford town centre.”
