STRAG write: Following the withdrawal of the Secretary of State’s call in direction (reported in our press release of 14 October) today Broxtowe Borough Council issued outline planning permission to Westerman Homes for up to 450 houses at Field Farm in Stapleford and Trowell. This was based on the decision of the Council’s Development Control Committee on 10th April 2013; the issue hasn’t been brought again in front of that Committee.
This is a sad day for the biodiversity of Nottinghamshire and its residents’ quality of living. The public will be invited to comment once a full planning application is submitted. STRAG will of course keep you informed on the process and possible means of action.
