A 400 acre greenfield site located immediately to the West of Burton-upon-Trent, Branston Locks (formerly known as Lawns Farm) is directly accessed from the A38. The land was acquired freehold by Nurton in June 2008 and in November 2011, Nurton sold a 50% share in the SPV Company that owns the land to a private investor.
The land has also been promoted as a strategic opportunity to deliver 2,500 homes, 50 acres of employment land and 50,000 sq ft of retail and associated community facilities with a local centre.
Outline planning granted in January 2014. The residential land will be sold off in plots from late 2015 onwards, with the commercial land developed out in line with pre-commitments from occupiers and/or funders.
