The meeting was called by Bramcote Neighbourhood Forum to formulate the Neighbourhood Forum’s Response to the Broxtowe Borough Council Consultation on a Potential Additional Site for Development in Bramcote.
The ‘Site’ which is green belt land includes all of Bramcote Hills Park and the land occupied by Bramcote Hills Primary School, Bramcote School, Bramcote 6th form college, Foxwood and the Leisure Centre as well as the Moor Lane running track area and the Coventry Lane playing Fields.
Question 2 on the Council’s Consultation Form ‘Do you think that the site should be allocated for development?’ was put to the meeting. As this question specifically refers to the whole site, residents overwhelmingly voted ‘No’. (188 residents at meeting. 186 voted ‘No’, 1 voted ‘Yes’, 1 abstained.).
The meeting was then asked if Bramcote Neighbourhood Forum’s response should include a recommendation that the site be considered for development on a granular basis (section by section). Resident’s voted by a substantial majority against this.
Before closing, Paul Nathanail, Chair, Bramcote Neighbourhood Forum urged residents to also give their personal responses to Broxtowe Borough Council’s consultation which can be found online via the following link: www.broxtowe.gov.uk/part2localplan
