The Public Inquiry regarding Field Farm took place today at Broxtowe Borough Council. 

A Planning Inspector which was appointed by the Secretary of State listened to both sides of the arguments regarding Broxtowe Borough Councils decision to refuse the planning application which was submitted by Westerman Homes to build 118 Houses as Phase One of development on the site off Ilkeston Road, Stapleford.


Representatives for Westerman Homes spoke about the application and why they would like the Planning Inspector to overrule the decision made against them.

Planning Officers from Broxtowe Borough Council spoke about the reasons why the application was refused and why they would like the Planning Inspector to uphold the decision to refuse the planning application.

Ken Mafham spoke on behalf of S.T.R.A.G.

Leader of Stapleford Town Council, Councillor Dave Pearson spoke on behalf of the Town Council.

Stapleford Councillor Richard MacRae also spoke to the Planning Inspector.

The Planning Inspector has also visited Field Farm to help him with the decision he now has to make.

As soon as the decision is announced we will of course let you know.

Stapleford Community Group would like to thank the Planning Officers at Broxtowe Borough Council for the hard work they have all put into this and also thank S.T.R.A.G., Ken Mafham, Stapleford Town Council, especially Councillor Dave Pearson and Stapleford Councillor Richard MacRae.

    Personally I believe permission should have been granted, we need more homes. Especially small affordable homes for first time buyers and new social rentable housing
