Almost 40 acres of land, on which 500 new homes could be built, has been put up for sale in Bramcote, Nottingham.

The land forms part of an allocation to deliver up to 500 new homes in Broxtowe Borough Council’s Local Plan (Part 2). The proceeds from the sale, on behalf of The White Hills Park Trust, will fund the construction of a new and upgraded school on the existing site of neighbouring Bramcote College.

The land, which stretches to around 39.9 acres, is situated to the east of Coventry Lane and at the northern edge of Bramcote.

It is being sold by Savills Nottingham. Ann Taylor, director in the Savills East Midlands development team, said: “This sale represents a fantastic opportunity for a developer to purchase a prominent and highly desirable development site in a sought after suburb of Nottingham. As such, we anticipate a great deal of interest from local, regional and national house builders.

“As part of Broxtowe Borough Council’s Local Plan, the land has been taken out of the Green Belt on the proviso that a number of conditions will be met by the developer. These will include creating pedestrian and cycle routes linking to the newly developed school, enhancing existing bus routes, and providing enhanced Green Infrastructure corridors which will link urban areas with local green spaces. Combined with the construction of a brand new secondary school, the new additions will further improve and enhance the facilities in the local area, for new and existing residents.”

The land is being sold on behalf of The White Hills Park Trust, which runs a number of schools in the county, including: Alderman White School; John Clifford School; Springbank Academy and The Florence Nightingale Academy.

White Hills Park CEO, Dr Paul Heery said: “This is a hugely exciting and significant development in the provision of the new Bramcote College. We have worked closely with Nottinghamshire County Council to secure the necessary agreements and can now focus on bringing about our vision of a high-quality, fit for purpose new school building. The fortunes of Bramcote College have been transformed in recent years, with rising student achievement and growing numbers – the new build will secure that progress and provide a school in which the whole community can take pride. We are looking forward to working with Savills to deliver the next stage of the project.”
