Proposed New Housing at 51 Ilkeston Road, Bramcote (Also Known as Farm/Fishpond Cottage)

Broxtowe Borough Council’s Housing Services & Strategy Manager writes: Thank you to those residents who completed the consultation survey. This letter aims to update you with the results of the survey and to let you know what the next steps are.

172 questionnaires were returned by post or completed online. The results of the survey identified that:
• 69% of respondents did not support the principle of building new homes for rent on the site,
• 76% of respondents did not support the current proposal to build mainly family homes on the site,
• 66% of respondents did not support the current proposal to demolish 51 Ilkeston Road,

In light of the comments received back from the consultation exercise, the layout plan and initial proposal to demolish the cottage are being reviewed by the architect and Council officers. A revised layout plan for inclusion in a planning application will be submitted shortly by the Council. We will write to residents again when a planning application has been submitted with details of how residents can view and comment on this. Unfortunately, we are unable to respond to any queries before this time.

  1. In addition to the returned questionnaires a petition was received signed by 81 residents against the proposed plan as well as several emails setting out additional concerns.
    Let’s hope that the Council’s officers have not just heard the objections but have also listened to them.
