Nottingham Forest – New Ground in Toton?

At the end of the Toton & Chilwell Meadows Community Action Team meeting on the 14th March, it was mentioned that Nottingham County Council are to discuss this week a proposal to relocate Nottingham Forest to Toton. Nottingham Forest are in dispute over the increased rent demands for the City Ground.

The Ashfield Independent Councillor who is proposing the motion is reported to have said “Toton already has the infrastructure including a tram stop and railway station”. (Toton doesn’t have a railway station and the proposal in the Government’s Integrated Rail Plan required 50% funding from private investors).

Quite how this proposal would help to meet the 3,000 homes, 18,000 sq m of office space and high skilled jobs included in the Broxtowe Part 2 Local Plan is unclear.
