Have your say

The company behind the massive Mowlands scheme proposed for the west side of Kirkby say they are ‘pleased with the level of local support’ for the plans.

More than 600 people took part in the consultation process carried out by developers Westerman Homes last year, but only half of these submitted a feedback form and only nearly 50 per cent of these were in favour or offered conditional support to the development.

The scheme consists of a £10m western relief road for Kirkby, 1,800 homes, 12 hectares of employment land, a new access for Ashfield School, a primary school and an extensive community park and the company said it has improved the scheme after listening to residents’ feedback. Changes made include moving the employment area from the south of the site to along the A38 corridor, reducing the size of the development overall and restricting access from existing residential roads into the development.
