The public consultation on proposals to develop housing on several sites in Erewash has been extended for a further five weeks and will now close on Monday 20 July.

The move means the original 12-week consultation has been extended by a week and Erewash Borough Council is keen to get the message out that residents still have time to share their views.

The consultation is asking for views on the council’s choice of preferred housing sites to meet the borough’s housing needs over the next two decades. The consultation on growth options will form part of the council’s Core Strategy.

The proposals include building new homes on the Green Belt at four local sites – west of Acorn Way in Oakwood; adjacent to Cotmanhay Wood, Ilkeston; a site south-east of Kirk Hallam; and land north of Lock Lane, Sawley.

Councillor Michael Powell, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Regeneration and Planning, says:

“This is an important consultation and, while we have already received many responses, we want to ensure everyone has the chance to share their views on what will be important decisions we have to make. If you still need to put your views forward, you have until 20 July.”

All relevant documents, full details of all the sites and an on-line form to submit views can be found on our Core strategy page.  Printed copies are also available to view at Long Eaton Town Hall reception.

Responses can be submitted by email to or by post to: Planning Policy, Long Eaton Town Hall, Derby Road, Long Eaton. NG10 1HU
