114-home BTR scheme gets green light

Plans to build 114 build-to-rent (BTR) homes on the site of a former British Gas Works in Nottingham have been given the go-ahead.

Stata Homes has been successful in pushing through plans for the scheme, which has been through several iterations since it was first unveiled a year ago.

The development, off Radford Road in Basford, will be built on 2.4ha of derelict brownfield land and will feature a public open space.

A statement from Strata said: “Our proposal involves the creation of 114 new homes which will help Nottingham City Council meet their housing needs.

“We have shown how we have considered the site and its surrounding environment in physical, social and economic terms and explained how these factors have influenced the evolution of the site design, both in conceptual and detailed terms.”
