Around 3,000 homes at Fairham Pastures have granted outline planning permission by councilors on Rushcliffe Borough Council’s planning committee.

The site, situated south of Clifton, has been acknowledged in Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Local Plan, in which it outlines that over the coming decade, a requirement of 13,500 homes are to be delivered in the borough.

100,000 square meters of employment land are additionally included in the application, which could;

  • create 2,500 jobs,
  • deliver new shops,
  • deliver a community building,
  • provide a new primary school.

Portfolio holder for housing and planning, Roger Upton, said:

“This major strategic site will help to provide much-needed housing for Rushcliffe and contribute towards a viable five-year housing supply required by central government. It will also deliver more employment opportunities to this part of Rushcliffe and the surrounding area. We want high-quality housing and good-quality jobs in this new ‘gateway’ development. In reaching the decision, the planning committee took into account all of the views of those who spoke and who commented in prior consultations following the initial submission in 2014.”

Additionally, Upton said the following are anticipated to be included in the development;

  • sports pitches,
  • children’s play areas,
  • a community park,
  • woodland tree planting.

Per the application, there will be a combination of, 1 to 5 bedroom homes, including townhouses and detached units from the 3,000 homes.

If research suggests there is a need for apartments and bungalows, they will be included, according to developer CWC Group and its landowner consortium partners.

Affordable housing levels will include a combination of affordable rent and shared ownership.

A minimum requirement of 10% has been set, however there are discussions of raising this level.
