The 7.73 hectare site borders the J37 slip road onto the M1, and planning documents state it is currently "overgrown".

Keepmoat’s design and access statement says that the development ‘has good access to local healthcare facilities’, and ‘will help support the local education institutions through an influx of new families in the area’.

The scheme is currently at outline stage, which means if approved, more details about the type of housing will be submitted at a later date.
