Broxtowe Borough Council adopted a Housing Delivery Plan in 2019.  The plan identified underused land owned by the Council that could potentially be developed for affordable housing.  This included 51 Ilkeston Road, Bramcote and the surrounding land. 

In 2018 a survey commissioned by the Council identified a need for 268 new affordable homes per year. The provision of affordable rented homes is a priority for the Council in order to meet the most pressing housing needs of the Borough.

 51 Ilkeston Road is no longer suitable for Council housing due to its poor internal layout and low ceilings.  It also requires structural repairs and major refurbishment works.  To give it a 25-year life will require a substantial financial investment that the Council cannot justify. 

The potential demolition of 51 Ilkeston Road would allow the Council to build seven 3 bed and two 1 bed homes on the site.  Any new homes built would be highly energy efficient dwellings using air source heat pumps and photovoltaic panels.  

This survey will be available until 18th September 2020.
