Ambitious plans to create jobs, housing and transport links, connecting old and new communities on the borders of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire over the next 20 years have been unveiled by Broxtowe Borough Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.
The Strategic Masterplan for Toton and Chetwynd Barracks, which opens for public consultation today (12 October) sets a framework to guide the future development of the two sites.
Residents around Toton, Chilwell, Stapleford, Sandiacre and Long Eaton, as well as the surrounding areas, are being asked for their views on plans for the area.
The consultation will run until Sunday 22nd November.
Leaflets will be sent to over 80,000 residents over the next few weeks asking for their views.
People can view the plans and leave their views in a ‘virtual’ display room which go into detail about the different aspects of the plans.
Due to Coronavirus restrictions in place responses will be collected by an innovative ‘virtual exhibition’. This will allow people to view plans online as well as submit their views.
In normal circumstances, public meetings would be held, but under current restrictions, this is not possible or sensible. However, the virtual exhibition will be available 24 hours per day, 7 days a week so people can drop in, view proposals and submit their comments.
