Plans to erect a contemporary, new home in Ruddington’s conservation area, right alongside The Green, have been rejected by Rushcliffe Borough Council (RBC). The application [22/00485/FUL] by Building Design (Nottm) Ltd would have seen the demolition of the garage belonging to 6, The Green (‘The White House’) to make way for a modern two storey house (plus attic room) to be built ‘next door’ over the current garden – filling the “gap” seen in the photograph above.

Dismay at Pay & Display

It seems there has been a largely negative reaction so far to the planned introduction of compulsory car parking charges at our country park this June – even though it will still only cost us a pound! Currently the £1 parking fee is by voluntary donation – meaning that some visitors choose not to pay it. The same noticeboard suggests that regular users contribute £20 per year. Making parking charges mandatory is expected to raise an additional £20,000 in income for Rushcliffe Borough Council – who voted for the change at a meeting in December. Rushcliffe Country…

Another New Homes Plan for Asher Lane

Rushcliffe Borough Council says it’s received revised plans this week to build 175 new dwellings on Ruddington’s greenbelt north of Asher Lane.

It follows their first application just over two years ago for 250 houses on the same site.  At that time a public meeting was held by Ruddington Parish Council who pro-actively supported villagers with objections to building there. Ruddington Action Group was also formed to lobby against it. On that occasion 903 comments were received – with 896 people objecting to the proposal and only…
