Find out about how we’re investing in Broxtowe for the future.

It’s an exciting time for Broxtowe Borough with a wide range of investment projects to help encourage sustainable growth in the area for generations of residents and businesses to benefit from.

The Arc cinemaBeeston

The Beeston Masterplan was adopted in 2008 to ensure Beeston’s future vitality. It included developing a sustainable evening economy, accessible transport links and promoting high quality town centre development and public realm improvements. Major projects include a new eight screen cinema and food and drink outlets due to open in summer 2021.

The Council hopes to secure external funding for investment in the town, from schemes like the Government’s Levelling Up fund. Two new industrial units are also being constructed as part of a £198,000 investment from the Council and D2N2 LEP via the Local Growth Fund.

Neighbourhood Planning

Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to ensure that they get the right types of development for their community where the ambition of the neighbourhood is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.

In Broxtowe, we have a number of neighbourhood plans, all at different stages.

The economy of Broxtowe could receive a major boost thanks to three major developments planned by the East Midlands Development Corporation - including the transformation of Chilwell and Toton. 

The planned closure of Chetwynd Barracks, scheduled for 2025, will create opportunities to reconnect parts of the area like never before, with an opportunity to protect existing heritage, create new cycle and walk ways as well as new green spaces.

Towns and communities across our borough, from Eastwood to Stapleford and Toton, would be able to access tens of thousands of jobs and apprenticeships, new homes, and significantly improved transport links.

The proposed hub station at Toton is located in a designated area of strategic growth, where the provision of next generation housing and high value employment is proposed.

This will include:

  • A station in a park: up to 4,500 homes and 6,500 knowledge driven jobs within a mixed use innovation campus.
  • A highlight connected community within a network of blue and green infrastructure including the River Erewash and the Erewash Canal.

More information is available on the HS2 page.

House Building  

Our Housing Building Delivery Plan will see a minimum of 230 homes built in the Borough on land which the Council owns, as well as brownfield, under-utilised or derelict land over the next ten years.

It will include buying back existing properties that were once Council homes, re-modelling existing and under-used accommodation, working in partnership with local registered providers to build homes, delivering the Council’s own new build developments and meeting the needs of an ageing population and those with conditions such as dementia.
