Green Light Given Cotgrave New Homes

Rushcliffe Borough Council has given the go-ahead for the construction of a new neighbourhood in Cotgrave, Nottinghamshire, on the site of a defunct colliery.

The development of 450 new homes, which is the first in the county to have gained top scores in a new national accreditation system, will be called as Hollygate Park and will be built by sibling businesses Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes, bringing jobs and investment to the local area.

The detailed scheme was granted following an in-depth engagement with local people and community organisations and is the conclusion of years of master planning between the Government’s Homes and Communities Agency who hold the site at Cotgrave, Rushcliffe Borough Council and the local community.

This £100 million development will provide a mix of quality modern houses as well as backing at least 200 jobs and training opportunities locally.

As one of the first developments in the UK to receive the Built For Life 12 accreditation, Hollygate Park demonstrates a commitment to design quality, safety, and a sense of belonging for its residents and the local community.

Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes’ planning director, Robert Galij, said, “We are delighted that detailed planning clearance had been granted for this project. To get to this point, we’ve worked hard with our partners and listened to the opinions and ideas of local residents and businesses. This development will bring new opportunities to the area while also providing beautiful new residences.

As part of this initiative, Barratt Home and David Wilson Home will create more than 200 local training and employment possibilities. We also wish to strengthen local businesses by encouraging them to engage in the provision of goods and services. ”

Construction work is planned to commence shortly, following the signing of a legal agreement between the parties, with the first residences projected to be available by early 2015.

“Detailed planning marks a significant step forward for all those involved in the transformation of Cotgrave,” said Graham Dobbs, HCA’s head of midlands north. We have worked for many years with the Council and local people to guarantee our land will offer much-needed jobs and homes for the current community and we can now look forward to achieving this with our partners at Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes.”

“This significant step in the development of Cotgrave is welcomed,” said Rushcliffe Borough Councillor John Cranswick, “and is the result of a very positive partnership with Barratt Homes, David Wilson Homes, and the Homes and Community Agency, and is intended to create growth in both housing and employment.”

This first phase of development must not only produce new jobs, but must also serve as a catalyst for creating the essential conditions to begin the first phase of town centre revitalization.

Cotgrave Town Council and Nottinghamshire County Council have been very important to our success so far. We look forward to working with them again. I can’t wait for construction to begin on site and to build on the solid cooperation foundations that have already been established.”
