More jobs and homes on the way in £96m scheme for Netherfield
MORE details have been revealed of a potential new housing scheme in Netherfield.
Developer Northern Trust Company Ltd this week announced plans for 800 new homes on land off Teal Close.
The housing is part of a £96 million project, which Northern Trust said would also include new sports pitches, a business area with a new hotel, care home, offices and industrial units and potentially a new school.
Northern Trust says the proposals will create an estimated 187 construction jobs, as well as 430 new full-time equivalent jobs when the scheme is up and running.

The company yesterday revealed at a public exhibition at Carlton Town Football Club, in Stoke Lane, Gedling, that the scheme would include a total of 830 homes, as well as a pub, children's play areas and an ecology park.
The plans also included "extensive new tree-planting to enhance the views of the site".
The site for the planned development borders on the Netherfield Lagoons, which are owned by the Gedling Conservation Trust.
The site manager for the trust, Peter Smith, attended yesterday's event.
He said: "I think this is a very good proposal. We need the homes and we need the jobs.
"What's important for us is how it is going to affect the conservation area.
"The development would mean a lot more traffic to the area, and while we don't want to discourage people from using it, I think we need to diffuse people a bit more into the neighbouring countryside."
Detailed plans were on show at the Carlton Town clubhouse yesterday showing lists and maps.
Suzanne Prew-Smith, Gedling borough councillor for Woodthorpe, also attended yesterday's exhibition.
She said: "I think some of the site is brownfield and I'm always in favour of developing those sites."
The company said it hoped to submit an outline planning application by next month.
