A Grade II listed derelict farm in Nottinghamshire could be restored and turned into 17 homes.
Home Farm, on the south side of Kimberley Road in Nuthall, has been derelict for 15 years and the proposed developer, BSP Holdings, hopes to restore it.
BSP Holdings said that the development would create more than 50 jobs over the course of the work and that it is experienced in dealing with listed buildings.
The farm was being used as a “dumping ground” said investment director of BSP Holdings, Adam Watson.
He added: “It used to be an operational farm but it has been left derelict for 15 years now.
“It’s crumbling and has been used for a lot of anti-social behaviour as we had to remove burned-out cars, rubbish from fly tippers – I couldn’t tell you how many skips we filled with rubbish from the site.
“We’re experienced in dealing with many Grade II listed buildings, we have recently done Marlborough Hall in Mapperley in which we restored the roof. We want to assure people that we have a history of dealing with these restorations.
“We’re not going to be knocking the farm down, just restoring it and converting it into houses. We want to keep its historic character.”
Members of the public were invited to learn more about the proposed restoration plans during an event which will be held on December 17.
The developer said this will give residents the chance to ask questions and find out how the restoration will affect them.
Mr Watson said: “The development will create more than 50 jobs over the course of the work, and will provide 17 houses when complete.
“The feedback on the scheme so far has been very positive from key stakeholders and the local residents and we wish to continue this conversation with the general public.
