Some 2,700 new homes are set to built in the Nottinghamshire borough of Rushcliffe.
The plans are part of an effort to build 13,150 new homes by 2028. Rushcliffe Borough Council has submitted its Local Plan Part 2 that outlines key housing allocations in the borough over the next decade.
The Plan includes policies and proposals for housing, Green Belt, employment, retail, open spaces and nature conservation.
The sites could deliver 2,700 of the new homes in Bunny, Cotgrave, Cropwell Bishop, East Bridgford, Gotham, Keyworth, Radcliffe-on-Trent, Ruddington and Sutton Bonington.
The Council’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Housing, Planning and Waste Management, councillor Roger Upton said: “The recently submitted Local Plan Part 2 has been produced to provide new housing, employment and other development opportunities across the Borough.
“In the autumn we anticipate an examination hearing and this will be an opportunity for all interested parties to be involved and present individual concerns for consideration by the Inspector.
“Following examination the Council will consider any required modifications and if the Inspector then determines the plan is sound and legally compliant, it could be adopted by the end of the year.
“Also addressed in the plan is the importance of trees in the borough, with policies in place to protect against the loss of mature trees and woodland from development.
“There are other policies within the plan that relate to the natural and built environments. In particular the plan seeks to ensure that new development contributes to the enhancement of the green infrastructure and biodiversity network across the Borough.”
