Developer sought for 170 homes in New Ollerton

20th December, 2014, by David Hargreaves

TWELVE acres of prime residential development land with planning consent in New Ollerton are being offered for sale by FHP Living.

The site, which has planning consent for 170 new homes, is centrally located and is very accessible via a number of main arterial routes including the A1.

Planning permission has been granted for 134 family houses, 23 bungalows and 27 apartments at the site, which neighbours an existing residential development and Tesco superstore.  Under the original consent, 14 units have been built with 170 remaining for further development in part or as a whole.

Associate director at FHP Living Ann Taylor is marketing the site, she said: “The housing market in the north of Nottinghamshire is active, with developers taking advantage of attractive land values and strong demand for new homes in the area – something this development will help to meet.

“This site provides a range of units and will therefore cater for both the indigenous population as well as purchasers who see this development as a perfect location for commuters.”

Established in 1996, Sherwood Energy Village has transformed the former colliery site into an award winning environmental enterprise park, comprising offices and some smaller commercial space.

“This site is located to the south east of the Energy Village, which in itself is an attractive park, coupled with the site’s proximity to the local retail and leisure offering and the existing residential environment, it makes this an attractive and versatile option for developers,” added Ann.

“Ollerton’s central location, which provides easy access to a number of large towns and cities including Mansfield, Newark and Nottingham as well as areas of natural beauty locally such as Sherwood Forest and Rufford Country Park will undoubtedly prove popular with families and first time buyers alike.
