Gedling 'listening to protesters'
GEDLING Borough Council has voted through its development strategy to be examined by the Planning Inspector in July.
The strategy includes planned housing developments in areas across the borough, including 1,000 homes in Top Wighay Farm, up to 600 on land north of Papplewick Lane, up to 500 homes at Bestwood Village, up to 1,300 homes at Calverton and up to 330 homes at Ravenshead.
More than 14,000 people gave feedback on the plans, including a joint response from 1,240 residents of Linby, Papplewick and Hucknall.
Concerns expressed, included the impact on the infrastructure, problems with flooding and a lack of consultation.

The council says it will have to find room for 7,250 new homes in the borough by 2028 – a figure based on predicted household growth and migration figures.
But Chris Barnfather, leader of the opposition Conservative group on the council, said the figure was "too high".
He added: "We think the spread of the homes is inequitable, it's far too much based in green-field sites"
Councillor Darrell Pulk, portfolio holder for leisure and development on the council, said the authority had considered all comments while developing its strategy.
