Broxtowe’s MP, Anna Soubry has represented residents’ views to developers planning 270 houses and facilities in Beeston Rylands.
“I held a “drop in” surgery in the Rylands, which a number of residents attended. I’ve also received emails from people concerned about the extent of the plans. I’ve written to the developers who have promised to listen to everyone’s views” said Anna.
Most controversial are plans for a two storey leisure and sports club on the Trent Vale Sports ground. “People living nearby make the good point that a single storey building would be better. I’m keen for better sporting facilities on the ground, which everyone in the Rylands can use. I know some residents don’t want houses on the ground, which is an important green open space.”
Anna has received a number of concerns from Ryland residents about the effect 270 houses will have on already congested roads. “These are all important matters and I am pleased that the developers have agreed to extend their consultation to the end of the week.”
The plans include 270 new homes, better sporting facilities, a two storey sports and social club, a local retail zone and a new train station car park.
