An application has been submitted to build nearly 90 new homes in Ollerton.

The plans have been submitted to Newark & Sherwood District Council for the properties on an area of unused land off Whinney Lane.

It was once the site of the now-demolished Ollerton Miners’ Welfare Centre, 
which was demolished 18 months ago.

There is an existing bowling green which is set to be preserved as part of the building scheme.

The site is already surrounded by residential properties on three sides.

The blueprints have been drawn up on behalf of Gleeson Homes who are looking to build 18 two-bed homes, 59 three-bed homes and 11 four-bed homes, all on a 2.66 hectare site.

There are 14 varying styles of homes planned, and all dwellings will have driveways for parking.

Access to the site will be from Whinney Lane.

“The site presents a great opportunity to contribute towards the need for new housing as outlined by Central Government in line with estimates for population increases.

“A number of draft proposals have been worked through as part of making the right choice for this resolved layout.”
