Bramcote Hills Golf Course Planning Application Appeal

broxtoweMrs E Palmer-Barnes, Broxtowe Borough Council writes:

Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended)
Land at: Bramcote Hills Golf Course, Thoresby Road, Bramcote
Proposed development: Outline application to develop former Bramcote Hills Golf Course [part], all matters reserved except for access from Deddington Lane, for use as a continuing care retirement and specialist care community consisting of accommodation units comprising up to 38 x 2 bed bungalows, 4 x 1 bed bungalows, 40 x 1 bed assisted care units and 18 x 1 bed flats together with specialist care/ancillary communal facilities
Appeal reference: APP/J3015/W/16/3162096
Appeal starting date: 5 January 2017
Appellant’s name: Champions Gate Ltd

I am writing to let you know that an appeal has been made to the Secretary of State in respect of the above site after refusal of the proposal by the Council for the following reason:

Whilst acknowledging that the Council does not have a five year land supply, the proposed development would have an adverse impact on the open and undeveloped nature of the site detracting from the visual amenity that the Bramcote Ridge and Bramcote Hills as a whole provides in this built up area. Accordingly, the development would conflict with the aims of the National Planning Policy Framework, Policy 16 of the Broxtowe Aligned Core Strategy (2014) and Policies E12, E13, RC5 and RC16 of the Broxtowe Local Plan.

The appeal is to be decided on the basis of written statements and a site visit by an Inspector.

Any comments already made about application reference number 14/00677/OUT (unless they are expressly confidential) will be forwarded to the Planning Inspectorate and copied to the appellant and will be taken into account by the Inspector in deciding the appeal.

If you wish to withdraw or modify any comments you may have made, or if you now wish to comment, would you please write (in triplicate) to Michael Joyce, The Planning Inspectorate, Room 3N, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Bristol, BS1 6PN by 9 February 2017, quoting the appeal reference number. If comments are submitted after the deadline, the Inspector will not normally look at them and they will be returned. You are advised that the Planning Inspectorate will not acknowledge representations.

The documents relating to this appeal may be viewed on the planning pages (‘Find a planning application’) of the Broxtowe Borough Council website

The Planning Inspectorate has published a booklet entitled “Guide to taking part in planning appeals proceeding by written representations” which may be of assistance to you. It is available to view on GOV.UK at:

The appeal decision will be published on GOV.UK.

If you require any further information or wish to discuss the appeal, please contact me.

Yours sincerely

Mrs E Palmer-Barnes
South Area Team Leader
