Emilia Baran, who owns a barbers shop with her family, told Nottinghamshire Live it will be positive for the area and town centre.

The 29-year-old said: “It does have an effect on house prices. Nottingham is getting bigger and bigger. It’s not going to have a bad effect on the area. It’s good, it’s beneficial for residents. It will bring more customers to Netherfield town centre. It’s good really.

She added: “It’s a bit rural here so it’s definitely good. Netherfield is a smaller town so should be alright. I think it’s alright – before, for the Sainsburys they held it for a few years – so if they’re making a move it’s giving a choice to new buyers.”

Another resident, Kelly Ruane, 33, has lived in the area for 14 years, told Nottinghamshire Live that the only concern is the Victoria retail park as it’s already busy to get on and off. The full time mum said: “It doesn’t affect us either way. The more homes the better, the more choice to get homes and more homes to meet and greet. The house prices are going up.

Kelly added:” The only negative is the retail park on the other side of the road – maybe more entrances and exits, it goes in and out onto a tiny road – that’s about it I think.”

Pauline Baskill, 76, retired, has lived in the area for 20 years. She says she understands that the homes have to be built as people need homes. Mrs Baskill said: “I feel alright about it – people have got to live somewhere. It’s all good and won’t affect us. People have got to live somewhere, it’s just a way of life.”
