Plans to build 900 homes and a business park on 298 acres (121 hectares) of land owned by Rolls-Royce in Hucknall have been approved.

Rolls-Royce and Muse Developments believe that the proposed business park near  the new homes will bring around 2,000 jobs to the area.  Under the plans approximately 69 acres (27.8 hectares) of the land will be used for the business park, 77 acres (31.2 hectares) for residential development and a further 143 acres (58 hectares) of greenbelt land improved for conservation.  A new access road to the Hucknall by-pass is also included in the plans.

With the site’s proximity to Rolls Royce it is expected that the new business park will be well positioned to attract high quality engineering jobs and businesses, possibly within the Rolls Royce supply chain, offering important jobs and valuable careers to local people.

Following the planning meeting, Leader of Ashfield District Council, Councillor Chris Baron, said the scheme would bring significant investment to the economy and the future of Hucknall adding: “We cannot even consider standstill for our town – it is just not an option.  We have to think of future generations – they need to have education, jobs and decent places to bring up their families.”
