The developers behind the controversial Mowlands housing development in Kirkby have withdrawn the plans to enable improvements to be made to the scheme.

W. Westerman Ltd had submitted a planning application to Ashfield District Council for a development consisting of a £10m western relief road, 1,800 homes, 12 hectares of employment land, a new access for Ashfield School, a primary school and an extensive community park.

But following ‘extensive consultation’ with English Heritage, Westerman has decided to withdraw the plans in order to spend extra time looking at the treatment of the conservation area around Kirkby Cross.
