Contractor Appointed To Gedling Scheme

A contractor has been appointed to start work on a scheme which forms part of plans for a new urban development at the 124-acre former Gedling Colliery site.

Regeneration specialist Keepmoat will provide up to 1,050 homes, a new local centre and contributions to the Gedling Access Road.

The residential development will incorporate two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom houses and two-bedroom apartments for private sale, as well as a mixture of homes for rent and shared ownership.

Keepmoat is working in partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), Gedling Borough Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.

The scheme is designed to complement Gedling Country Park, which stands to the north of the development on the site of a former pit spoil heap, and will be developed through a phased approach.

Up to 315 residential properties will be provided within phase one and the first plots could be completed in autumn 2016. This first phase will also include a new roundabout to the north west of the site as part of the new access plans.

Paul Degg, regional managing director at Keepmoat, said: “The development at the former Gedling Colliery will provide a wide range of affordable housing options for local people as well as presenting employment and training opportunities in the construction sector throughout the site’s development.”

Councillor John Clarke, leader of Gedling Borough Council, said: “We are very pleased that Keepmoat has been appointed to work on this long awaited development and we look forward to working with them closely on this ambitious project. The proposed plans will bring much needed new homes and the promise of opportunities for employment for local people.

Graham Dobbs, head of Midlands north area at the HCA, added: “There has been clear local desire to see this redundant brownfield land brought back into use as a successful place and its potential has even been recognised by government, with the scheme recently shortlisted for housing zone status.”
