There has been a new development in the saga of the former Plant Works site. Countryside PLC are proposing to build a total of 665 houses, including a mix of 2-4 bedroom dwellings.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     A letter has been delivered to houses close to the site informing them of what is proposed. The draft proposal consists of 665 housing including a mix of 2-4 bedroom dwellings. The development also includes an expansive proposed area of public open space within the western portion of the site, as well as smaller areas of new open space within the development itself. Access to the site will be taken from the existing access points on Flowitt Street and Eden Grove. The letter says,”We would like to invite residents and interested parties to attend a public exhibition, which will allow you to view the plans and proposals and discuss the scheme with Countryside. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and leave written comments on the proposals. The comments will inform the preparation of the final plans for the site and we hope that you are able to provide your thoughts.’”

The consultation will be held at Hexthorpe Parish Hall (St Jude’s), on Wednesday 19th June between 2pm – 6.30pm.
