Plans submitted for over 100 new homes in Bestwood
Nottingham City Homes (NCH) has submitted a planning application for 106 new council houses in Bestwood.
The site, on Whitcombe Gardens, is the where the former Eastglade School stood. It was closed in July 2007 and demolished soon after.
The plans for 106 new homes, includes 23 one bed flats, 63 two bed houses and 20 three bed homes – plus open space for the whole community to enjoy.
If given planning permission, NCH expect to appoint a contractor in spring next year – with plans to be onsite in winter 2020. The properties would be completed around spring 2023. Local company Pelham Architects have designed the site. If built, this will take the total number of affordable new homes built by NCH to well over 700 in the city.
Nick Murphy, the Chief Executive of Nottingham City Homes, said: “The Eastglade site has been derelict for years and we’re delighted to be able to bring it back to life, providing much needed homes for Nottingham people.
“There is a huge demand for homes from our waiting list and the council has pledged to build or buy 1000 council or social homes by 2023 – this development would be a much needed contribution to that.
“We are committed to building well-designed homes, energy efficient and affordable for local people. This development would also see wider improvements to the area, which will benefit the neighbourhood and be an asset to the local community.”
