Broxtowe Part Two Plan – Changes Relating to Bramcote

Here is a summary of the most significant recommended changes to the Broxtowe Part Two Local Plan for Bramcote from the Agenda for the Jobs and Economy Committee Meeting scheduled for 16 July 2018:

• Number of houses increased from 300 to 500. (Editor-On the Coventry Lane Playing Fields) This is achievable as the Local
Wildlife Site has been reviewed and the area of ecological value is smaller
than previously anticipated and the Hillside Gospel Church land has been
included in the residential allocation area. This is to allow for greater certainty
that the school can be re-built and also increase the likelihood of a
replacement leisure centre
• The aspiration to include a leisure centre has been strengthened with the
removal of the qualification ‘if required’
• Requirement to mitigate/compensate loss of Local Wildlife Site at equivalent
• New Requirement to provide single junction for Bramcote/Stapleford
allocations (opposite Sidings Lane) in accordance with the request of
Nottinghamshire County Council as the highway Authority
• Local Green Space designation has been changed back to Green Belt
following various request that this is done
• Clarification and strengthened Green Infrastructure links
• Reference to ‘not compromising the stability’ regarding removal of vegetation
on the cutting.

  1. These proposals would mean that Bramcote would take over 10% of the 6150 homes target that Broxtowe set it self when it adopted the Aligned Core Strategy… 40 at st johns, 100 at the golf course and 500 at the Coventry Lane Playing Fields along with a number of smaller infill developments. This is a very large proportion and will significantly change our area.

    I will be writing to the Chair of the Jobs & Economy Committee asking his committee to consider the extent to which the plan is being reasonable in the way it is treating Bramcote.

    To that end, there will be a meeting on Thursday 12 July for Forum members to agree on the contents of that letter.
    This is clearly a very important moment in time for our area and this is the chance for the Forum to inform our councillors of our views on Part 2 of the plan.

    As if that was not enough, on Thursday morning, teh County Council is discussing a motion tabled by the leader of the County Council to pursue Nottinghamshire County Council becoming a unitary authority – as Nottingham City Council already is. Such a course of action wold involved abolishing Broxtowe Borouch Council and all of its services being proviedd by the County Council.

    I hope you will attend and take part in the meeting on 12 July – venue to be announced!
    Whether or not you are able to attend please free to email me with any thoughts you may have on the Council’s plan or the ambitions of the County Council’s leader to form a unitary authority.

    Please pass this on to friends and neighbours and encourage them if they are not yet a member of Bramcote Neighbourhood Forum, to consider joining at

    Paul Nathanail
    Chair, Bramcote Neighbourhood Forum
