    Our Proposed Development

    The proposed development of these much needed new homes is on greenfield land surrounding the two existing residential properties at Lodge Farm, off Machins Lane, Edwalton.

    Our proposed access will be from a new signalised junction formed off Edwalton Lodge Close with further improvements onto the Melton Road.

    The land currently comprises four fields, with each one enclosed mainly by hedgerow and occasional trees, and as much of the existing vegetation will be retained where possible as part of our proposals for the site.

    The land's northern boundary adjoins the grounds and playing fields of Rushcliffe School and Leisure Centre, while the eastern boundary abuts the rear gardens of homes in Edwalton Lodge Close. This boundary will be protected by a buffer of green open space in addition to the existing hedgerow.

    The southern tip of the site meets the A606 Melton Road, and it is at this point that we propose to provide the main access to the new homes.

    Currently to the south-west and west of the land lie open fields, which are allocated for further residential development, by other residential developers in the future.

    The proposed development site slopes from west to east and a new Sustainable Drainage Scheme (SuDS), including retention basins in the centre of and to the east of the site, will ensure that levels of surface water run-off from the site is no greater than current levels.

    This new area will provide an exciting environment for public use and will see new wildlife habitats become established over time

    Local Community

    Our development proposals, which are now approved will make significant contributions to the local community in accordance with the development framework for the wider Melton Road development.
