EXCITING PLANS FOR TEAL CLOSE TAKE A STEP FORWARD
24th September 2014
Northern Trust Company Ltd is bringing forward proposals for a mixed use development on land to the east of Netherfield, known as Teal Close. The plans, which were recently on display at Carlton Town Football Club and the St George’s Centre in Netherfield, are for 830 new homes (including much-needed affordable properties) and include new sports pitches, employment land, a hotel, a community hub and primary school, biodiversity enhancements and highways improvements. The proposals, worth £96m, could create around 700 long-term jobs in a sustainable location and will help to provide affordable properties for key workers.
Over 150 people attended the public exhibition events where the plans were on display and many provided feedback which has influenced the final proposals. Northern Trust has incorporated the community’s feedback and submitted its planning application to Gedling Borough Council.
A Northern Trust spokesperson said: “We’re grateful to everyone who has provided their feedback as part of our consultation process, both at the exhibitions and via our dedicated website and email address. The proposals will bring major benefits to the local community, not least through new jobs, sports pitches and community facilities. We have taken into account people’s views when preparing our proposals and we are delighted to have submitted the application. We look forward to working with the community as the plans progress. Please keep checking the website for further updates.”
Following comments from the public, new elements have been added to the scheme. These include: community allotments to the north east of the site, a new footway along Stoke Lane which will encourage and enable safe pedestrian access and a commitment to fund public transport improvements.
Councillor John Clarke, leader of Gedling Borough Council, said: “We welcome development like this across the borough. We’re a council that believes in growth and creating prosperity and sustainable homes and jobs for our residents. Proposals such as this improve the quality of life for everyone in the local area.”
If residents were unable to attend the exhibition, a website containing more information on the proposals is available to view. The website address is www.tealclose.co.uk.
