NOTTINGHAM | M1 J26 Oxylane Village - Broxtowe | App

Not sure if this slipped under the radar or not - I haven't found it in a search.
The owners of Decathlon are looking at bringing their successful Oxylane Village concept to the UK from from France.
The first site proposed is just to the west of M1 J26.

Website detailing the development is here:

The site will cover about 50 acres and have multi use sports pitches, cycling, and walking areas.

The planning app can be found on Broxtowe's planning site under ref: 12/00644/OUT. http://planning.broxtowe.gov.uk

Looks closer to the City Area of Nottingham, which is better for the majority of residents, good location between 2 big roads!
And a variety of sports too!
I wonder what will happen to the current Decathlon building?

And if there are plans for the NET extension towards Kimberly/Eastwood as rumoured/mentioned, I wonder if it will pass anywhere near this, due to Park and Ride being just down the road, but slightly toofar/unaccessable on foot to get to this new site?

I had assumed that any extention of the Phoenix Park line would carry on its current alignment until it reaches Nottingham Road in Nuthall, which it follows through Kimberley, past IKEA and all the way up to Eastwood. I may be wrong of course.

I see this was resubmitted, why do these things have to wait so long to get built, do we all have to live in a car obsessed, gritty suburban industrial estate!!

I'm usually against green belt development, but for a project like this with such enormous health and social benefits it simply must be passed.

Sorry I see this was turned down almost immediately, greenbelt and transport issues that will not be resolved - To be honest a lot of the land around there even greenbelt is not particularly pretty next to the road and at least infilling between the towns may in the long term improve transport link and the tram may be extended.

People see Green Belt and immediately oppose it. Nuts. Cities need to breathe and develop. Prevent that and you'll prevent prosperity.

I hope one day we will look at the merits of a scheme instead. Yes GB needs to be carefully looked after but it is not a sacred cow.
