Councillor Martin Plackett writes: Broxtowe Borough Council Jobs and Economy Meeting are due to debate changes to the Councils Part 2 Plan at their next meeting.
If changes proposed relating to Bramcote are agreed then thanks to submissions from Bramcote Neighbourhood Forum and a strong personal plea to the Committee from Cllr Martin Plackett both BRAMCOTE HILLS PARK and the RUNNING TRACK area off MOOR LANE will REMAIN as GREENBELT.
I am delighted that this proposal is to be discussed at the July meeting. It is pleasing that the campaign by myself and the Forum for these changes has been addressed and hopefully will be adopted by the Committee and subsequently the Full Council.
The changes to the Plan also increase the number of houses off Coventry Lane in Bramcote to 500 giving greater certainty that a brand new 21st Century School can be built and increases the likelihood of a new leisure Centre also being built. The aspiration to include a Leisure centre has been strengthened with the removal of the qualification ‘if required’.
