More houses for bus-depot site

THE FINAL phase of the redevelopment of a former bus-depot on the outskirts of Bulwell was expected to be given the green light this week.

The site, which sits between Bulwell Lane and Park Lane on the border of Bulwell and New Basford, was formerly the headquarters of the the Dunn-Line company.

The firm moved on several years ago to Beechdale Road in Nottingham.

Already two-thirds of Dunn-Line’s former headquarters has been developed for housing, known as Weave Close.

Now a bid has been made for outline planning permission by Sycamore Developments to build homes on the final pocket of land.

A basic application has gone before the development control committee at Nottingham City Council.

A suggested layout shows a development of 26 homes with access from Bulwell Lane.

A mixture of properties is proposed, including two, three and four-bedroomed, semi-detached homes and terraced houses.

The plans have been submitted to the council by IG Land and Planning, of Northamptonshire, on behalf of the developer.

Before building work can start, more detailed plans, including proposed materials and positions for the properties, will have to be submitted to the council for consideration.
