Homes could be built on old Church Warsop farm


Homes could be built on the site of an old farm and part of a social club in Church Warsop.

Two applications have been submitted by A. Green Investments for the site off Bishops Walk to build 23 new homes.

It includes flattening the redundant Moorfield Farm, two barns and a farm bungalow converted, which was a converted farm building.

The abandoned farm has become a magnet for vandals since the family moved to a new property.

As part of the application, a paddock which has not been used for years will also be used after being approval.

The final part of the application was to part demolish a section of the Church Warsop Memorial Club and the car park to the rear of the building.

The site has already received planning permission in recent years, but has since lapsed.

The plan is to build seven two-bedroom homes, 14 three-bedroom houses and two properties with at least four bedrooms.

Each dwelling will have at least one garage and at 
least an off-street parking space.

Each property will also be provided with a ‘reasonable’ private rear garden area surrounded by an 1.8m fence.

The site is surrounded on three sides by residential properties and a statement by the applicants states that the site ‘will integrate with the existing pattern of settlement’.

An ecological survey has already been carried out and presented to Mansfield District Council with a previous application and it was 
concluded that the development would a minimal impact.
