Big challenges and opportunities for the future

Within Tollerton parish a significant area of land has been allocated for the future expansion of the greater Nottingham conurbation.

The Rushcliffe Local Plan Core Strategy identifies two further strategic allocation sites close to Tollerton. These include sites of sizable housing development before 2028.

The full details of these can be found on the Borough Council Planning Policy pages of the Borough Council website. The following extracts provide some context to the agreed future developments:

Within Tollerton and to the north of the village a “mixed-use development including around 2,500 dwellings up to 2028, up to a further 1,500 homes post 2028, around 20 hectares of employment development, a neighbourhood centre and other community facilities as appropriate. The design and layout of the proposal will be determined through a masterplanning process. The final design, layout and quantum of development shall take full account of heritage assets and their setting. The development shall be appropriately phased to take into account provision of necessary infrastructure, including improvements to the highway along the A52(T) and public transport network.
