The views of residents are being sought on the future development of Tollerton. Tollerton is expected to expand by 4000 houses over the next 20 years and the Rushcliffe Borough Council consultation on options for further housing within the village has now closed.
Residents still have an opportunity to have a say on how the village should develop and what facilities and infrastructure will be needed across Tollerton to support this growth through our Neighbourhood Plan Consultation.
Tollerton Parish Council started the formal process to develop a Neighbourhood Plan last year by asking Rushcliffe Borough Council to designate the whole of the parish of Tollerton as a “neighbourhood plan area”. Other villages such as Keyworth and Radcliffe are already working on similar plans.
The new Plan must fit with the Rushcliffe Borough Council Local Plan and cannot overrule the housing growth that has already been agreed so it is inevitable that significant new development will occur within Tollerton. This is currently expected to be 4000 homes in the area sometimes referred to as East of Gamston that forms part of Tollerton.
If approved by Tollerton residents through a referendum, the Tollerton Neighbourhood Plan will have legal force and developers and local authority planners will have to take notice of it. The Neighbourhood Plan is likely to focus on ensuring that there are appropriate facilities and infrastructure to meet the needs of current and future residents and protecting the identity of the existing village.
The survey runs until 26 May.
