Former Newbold Community School (Lower Site)

The council has drawn up a planning brief for the redevelopment of the former Newbold School site, which is allocated in the Local Plan for the development of new homes. It requires any future developer to:

  • make up to around a third of homes affordable;
  • make sure the site provides homes in a well-designed layout which:
    1. respects the nearby setting of the Eyre Chapel, the adjacent conservation area and trees and the surrounding area;
    2. provides good quality open space, a play area and landscaping;
    3. ensures that people are encouraged to use sustainable transport, by creating good links to walking and cycling routes
  • minimise energy use by building to Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
  • contribute to the provision of local community facilities including school places, public open space, local labour and public art.

The planning brief can be viewed through the link below:
