Nottinghamshire County Council is proposing to bring forward planning applications for approximately 235 new homes on land south of Cauldwell Road, Berry Hill, Mansfield, and approximately 320 new homes on land east of Sutton Parkway, Kirkby-in-Ashfield.
Both sites are owned by the Council and form part of a county-wide drive to create new housing in sustainable locations.
Funding has been secured from Homes England as part of the Local Authority Accelerated Construction Fund to help bring these sites forward for development and provide the necessary infrastructure.
