Our vision for Ordsall Garden Neighbourhood is to create an exemplar urban extension to Ordsall. Not just housing but a new community with employment, shops and a school, squares and parks, woven among homes for a range of people – young and old, professionals and families - with a complete mix of tenures.
This webpage presents a mixed-use sustainable garden neighbourhood, and sets out why it forms the best option for the future sustainable growth of Retford.
Ordsall Garden Neighbourhood will offer people a great quality of life in a rich landscape setting close to the heart of Retford.
Bassetlaw District Council is currently producing the Local Plan for the area to set out the Council’s development strategy until 2037 and will seek to deliver 8,126 homes in the district before 2037; some 478 dwellings per annum.
Retford is one of the three main settlements within Bassetlaw and is vital to the delivery of that growth. Key benefits that make Retford and Ordsall suitable for growth, include:
Ordsall Garden Neighbourhood is being promoted by local people who care about Retford and who aspire to deliver an exceptional development with a lasting legacy. The new neighbourhood will provide not just new homes but all the necessary ingredients to help the existing and new community flourish.
The Site Plan, hopes to provide you with an insight of how we envision the future of Ordsall. The plans offer a balance of family friendly green spaces mixed around functional business and retail opportunities.
