Bingham has experienced and will continue to experience significant growth in housing over the next 10 years so therefore the main priority of the Bingham Growth Board is to ensure the development that will take place to the north of the town connects to the existing town centre and contributes to strengthening the local economy and the Town Centre.

Bingham Growth Board commissioned a masterplan which identified a number of key priorities:

  • Enhancements of the market square and increased activity
  • Improvements to the connectivity of the town including green walkable routes connecting to the development in the North.
  • Development of the Chapel Lane junction site and long term aspiration to relocate the train station
  • Provision for community facilities
  • Car parking

The last meeting of the Growth Board focussed on agreeing an action plan based on the findings of the masterplan, and a work programme going forward.

The next meeting is in March 2019 where there will be an update on

  • Chapel Lane proposals
  • Market square proposals
  • Butt Lane long stay car park
  • Walking routes and signage.

The full masterplan is available to view here.

East Leake

West Bridgford

West Bridgford Growth Board’s main priority is to maintain West Bridgford’s reputation as a high-quality, thriving and diverse retail, leisure and business centre, and to consider ways of further building on the success of the town.

Since the Board was established a number of projects have emerged:

  • A West Bridgford Commissioners study was undertaken which identified numerous recommendations, and formed the basis of Rushcliffe’s response to Cabinet that set out a vision which will help shape the future of the town centre 
  • A masterplanning exercise is currently being undertaken for Tudor Square.
  • A feasibility study is being undertaken to explore the potential future development of Bridgford Road car park.
  • Melton Road Christmas lights switch on event and ‘Holly Jolly High Street’ retail trail.
  • Development of the West Bridgford Way website which will include listings of local businesses and links to websites where available. There will be a social media campaign to promote this, and a launch event is being planned for Spring 2019.  

The next meeting of the Board will take place in March 2019 and will focus on progress against the items identified in the commissioner’s report, and an update on plans for Tudor Square and Bridgford Road car park.
