Up to 59 homes could be built on three vacant sites across a Nottinghamshire town.
If plans are given the go-ahead by Mansfield District Council’s planning committee, homes could be built on Westfield Lane, Colston Road and Sherwood Close.
Three separate planning applications were submitted to the council this month for a mix of houses, apartments and bungalows.
All sites are within a five-mile radius of each other.
Plans for the Westfield Lane site were submitted by Munkbridge Homes Ltd. The company wants to build 14 bungalows on the former care home site, which was demolished some months ago.
The planning application submitted by the developer states: “This development should have no detrimental impact on the existing neighbouring properties.
“More than adequate parking is provided within the site and it is hoped that this is satisfactory in terms of layout, scale and appearance and a satisfactory residential environment.”
The application for the site includes plans for 28 car parking spaces.
At the Colston Road site, which is described as a brownfield site, developer Urban Plus Ltd has applied for permission to build six one-bed and six two-bed apartments.
The planning application submitted to the council states: “The area currently suffers from new quality investment, this is evident in the existing housing stock in the locale.
“The development will provide area regeneration, employment from construction work during the development.
“The proposal will result in the delivery of high quality residential development in a sustainable brown field location.”
Gleeson Homes wants to build 33 two and three bedroom homes on land off Sherwood Close.
If it’s given the go-ahead, 11 of the homes would have two bedrooms, and the remaining 22 would have three bedrooms.
The site was used as allotment gardens up until 2016, and has now been stood empty for some months.
The developer said this area has become a “fly-tipping” hot spot, and believed the homes would get rid of this issue.
Forty car park spaces are also planned as part of this application.
