Public Meeting on the Future of Chetwynd Barracks

Chetwynd PhotoFrom Anna Soubry’s Newsletter and repeated here because of the effect housing development at Chetwynd Barracks will have on developments elsewhere in Broxtowe: I am holding a public meeting about the future of Chetwynd Barracks following the recent announcement that it will close by 2020. At approximately 185 acres, this is a considerable site and I urge residents to come along to the meeting on Sunday May 15 (details below).

The MOD plans to sell the site and build up to 800 houses. This will have a huge impact on Toton and Chilwell Meadows.

I have already had a meeting with local Councillors and officials of Broxtowe Borough Council and have a meeting planned with the MOD and their organisation that looks after and disposes of land.

I believe we must make sure any plans include full consultation with residents; we need a proper, far reaching and imaginative neighbourhood plan and commitments to improved infrastructure notably roads and schools. I would like the remaining land to be released into public ownership as parkland to include the existing memorials and commemorate the people who were killed in the 1918 munitions explosion. There’s a lot to discuss so I hope you can come along – if you can’t attend please let me know and I will make sure you are kept informed.

The meeting is on Sunday May 15 at 4pm at the Village Hotel, Chilwell Meadows.

    My name is Lynda Maddison, I live right next door to the barracks at Martell Court, the base helicopters fly in and out right over my flat. I have tried to register with the Toton &Chilwell neighbourhood forum website – but cannot seem to get into it to register my interest/input.

    I didn’t know that they were selling the base until a flyer was pushed through my letterbox yesterday.

    I don’t know what else to do as, there is no signed name at the bottom of the flyer…

    Kind Regards
