The Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan proposes the development of up to 5,000 homes to create a "Garden Village" - the marketing term for a large new housing estate in the countryside - that could stretch along both sides of Station Road from the A52 at Elton on the Hill all the way to Orston and nearly to the River Smite.
A group of concerned residents have formed an action group called, ‘Orston and Surrounding Villages Against Inappropriate Development’ (OSVAID.)
This consultation is part of the proposed Greater Nottingham Planning Strategy for 2028 to 2038. Importantly, the Sec of State for Housing, Communities and Local Goverment, our MP Robert Jenrick, is pushing through planning reforms. His proposals mean that once an area is designated for development the local communities will have no opportunity to get involved with the planning application, as outline planning permission is automatically granted to the developer.
