80 jobs on the way as £30m resi scheme gets green light

How the homes could look

Work is set to begin on a £30m 169-home residential development in Bramcote after Broxtowe Borough Council gave the scheme the thumbs up.

Chilwell-based developer Peter James Homes has secured permission to build the homes on greenfield land off Coventry Lane some ten years after the plans were originally laid down.

80 construction jobs will be created when work begins on the 22-acre site.

The development, which received outline planning permission 12 months ago, will comprise 118 homes of between two and five bedrooms and 51 affordable properties.

Peter James Homes has committed to providing £225,000 for a new bus service to feed the development and a contribution of £700,000 towards education and healthcare in the area.

Simon Gardiner, managing director of Peter James Homes, said: “We are absolutely delighted to see this development finally reaching the stage where we can turn our 10-year plan into reality.

“As a local company, we’ve worked tirelessly alongside the council to deliver a development plan that is totally sympathetic to the surrounding fields and woodland environment, as well as one that provides a really attractive solution to the area’s housing shortage.

“We hope to be able to start work in the spring and, with an estimated construction rate of 50 to 60 homes a year, the development should be completed within three years. It will hopefully bring a real boost to the area.”

Gardiner added: “It’s great to be working in Broxtowe again. This time on our biggest housing scheme yet!”
