Hollygate Park is a £100m regeneration project at a former coal-mining site in Cotgrave, Nottinghamshire. It is set to deliver up to 470 new homes – 137 of which will be available for social rent or low cost home ownership, and managed by Metropolitan.
Metropolitan is working with Rushcliffe Borough Council, builders Barratt and David Wilson Homes, the Homes and Communities Agency, Nottinghamshire County Council and Cotgrave Town Council to deliver the project.
The scheme includes a mix of housing and employment space for local businesses, as well as landscaping on the colliery site which leads into the nearby country park. Located seven miles from Nottingham city centre, the development will create more than 200 local training and employment opportunities.
Metropolitan welcomed its first new residents to Hollygate Park in December 2015, and new affordable homes will be completed in phases by 2020.
Cotgrave colliery opened in the early 1960s and employed up to 2,000 miners when it was in full production. However, from the time it closed in 1994, the site remained derelict until work commenced on Hollygate Park in late 2014.
