Planning permission has been granted for the redevelopment of the Thoresby Colliery site in Nottinghamshire. Up to 800 new homes, a strategic employment site, country park, local centre with leisure and recreation facilities, a primary school and green space are all set to be developed on the site.
The closure of the ex-mining site and loss of 400 jobs had a major impact on the local community, and the new development has strong community support and will deliver more than 1000 jobs to the area.
Pegasus Group fully engaged the local community throughout the planning application process holding a series of events held at Thoresby Colliery itself. All stakeholders were engaged very early in the process including Local Authorities, Parish Councils, Network Rail, footpath and cycle organisations, adjacent landowners, ecologists and local residents.
Feedback received from stakeholders has been very positive and members were impressed by the quality of the submission and extensive consultation process.
The decision was unanimous and Pegasus Group is now coordinating the reserved matters submissions continuing the dialogue with stakeholders.
