Ambitious plans for the future are unveiled: Green spaces, transport, jobs and housing – Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire residents invited to give their views

01/11/2021 - Ambitious plans to create jobs, housing and transport links, connecting old and new communities on the borders of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire over the next 20 years will be unveiled on Monday 1 November 2021.

Residents around Toton, Chilwell, Stapleford, Sandiacre and Long Eaton, as well as the surrounding areas, are being asked by Broxtowe Borough Council for their views on a Strategic Masterplan for the development of the area. The consultation will run until midnight on Monday 13 December.An artist’s  impression of how future development might look at Toton

The scheduled closure of the historic Chetwynd Barracks in 2024 and any proposed transport works around the potential Toton East Midlands Hub, provide a once in a lifetime opportunity to map out the future for the area, create cycle pathways, green spaces, new schools, healthcare facilities and modern communities, which offer affordable and carbon neutral homes. 

Leaflets will be sent to over 80,000 residents over the coming weeks asking for their views. People can view the plans and leave their comments in a ‘virtual’ display room https://toton-and-chetwynd.virtual-engage.com/(Opens in a New Window). 

The proposals for Toton and Chetwynd also form part of an ambitious long-term vision for the future of the regional economy which is being developed under the banner of the proposed East Midlands Development Corporation. 

The vision will see coordinated development around Toton and Chetwynd, Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station and East Midlands Airport, with the aim of creating 84,000 jobs and adding £4.8bn to the value of the regional economy. 

The Masterplan has been developed over the last four years with Nottinghamshire County Council, supported by Erewash Borough Council and Derbyshire County Council. 

Paper copies of the proposals and feedback forms are also available on request. Email policy@broxtowe.gov.uk or call Broxtowe Borough Council on 0115 917 7777 and ask to speak to the Duty Planner, from 10.30am to 12.30pm, Monday to Friday.
