Keepmoat Homes has bought around ten acres of land for which it plans to develop 103 homes and a Co-op.

The site off Eakring Road in Bilsthorpe had permission revised in order to increase the density in the location.

In addition as part of the sale and the planning consent, Savills which marketed the property on behalf of Harworth secured an on-site retail unit, which was purchased by Lincolnshire Co-op.

Both affordable and private homes of two, three and four-bedrooms will be delivered with completion anticipated to be in August 2024.

Ann Taylor, development director at Savills, said: “Newark and Sherwood District Council has identified Bilsthorpe as an area for regeneration and development, and this site is highlighted as an important gateway location which manages the transition into the main built-up part of the village.

“It’s well-placed for Newark Northgate station and is also supported by a number of a-roads; making it easily commutable to Nottingham, Mansfield and a number of surrounding towns and suburbs.”

Tim Love Executive, director of Harworth, added: “Having secured the outline consent on this site, it is great to see the development coming forward, delivering much needed housing into the area and an important new retail facility which will benefit both the new residents and existing community.”

The teams who worked collaboratively to deliver this mixed-use scheme comprised Gateleys acting on behalf of Harworth Group, Wardhadaway acting for Keepmoat Homes, and Chattertons acting for Lincolnshire Co-op Limited.
