Have your say on 500 homes for Alfreton bid

Alfreton Town Council is urging members of the public to have their say on a bid to build 500 homes outside the town.

Developer Wheeldon Brothers Ltd has submitted an outline planning application to build the properties on land known as Outseats Farm - between Mansfield Road to the north and the A38 to the south.

Cllr John Brown said: “This is an important and complex application which has raised considerable local interest. The Town Council wants to represent the views of local people to the Amber Valley Borough Council who are the planning authority in this matter.”

The deadline set for representations is March 23. The council anticipates a good deal of public interest and is holding the meeting in the bigger venue of Alfreton Community Hall, at Mansfield Road, on March 14, at 7pm. Those who wish to speak should register their interest, by noon on Friday March 9, in person at Room 12 Alfreton House, by calling 01773 520032 or emailing alfretontc@aol.com
