A packed public meeting at St. Peter’s Rooms said they did not want 250 houses on land off Asher Lane.
On 19th August some 140 people packed St. Peter’s Rooms to hear a proposal to have a 250 house estate off Asher Lane. The agents for the owners – a family trust – briefly set out the proposals. There will also be 2 roadshows, with an opportunity for more detailed questions:
Wednesday 17th September 4.00 – 8.30 at Jubilee Clubhouse, and
Saturday 20th September 10.00 – 2.00 at St. Peter’s Rooms.
The following comments (among many) were made:
The proposed development is in the Green Belt and there are already brown field sites in Ruddington were house building would be possible.
It would be much better for Ruddington if the 250 houses designated by RBC were spread around the village and not in one place.
The development will produce extra traffic along Asher Lane which is already struggling to cope, and also on the A60 Loughborough Road.
The roads and pavements near the Green are already dangerous.
