Plans to redevelop the site of a public house at a major junction in the borough have been changed.

The Bulls Head at Little Hallam Hill, at the junction with a mini-island on the A6096 linking Ilkeston, Kirk Hallam and Stanton-by-Dale was closed by brewery company Greene King in January 2020 with the site subsequently sold.

The area has been the subject of demolition, landscaping and construction under plans approved in January 2021 to create a micro-pub, plus a bed and breakfast and housing, however, according to revised plans submitted to Erewash Borough Council, the bed and breakfast plans now appear to have been withdrawn with the revised application now referring to a shop with one bedroom flats for the remaining part of the former pub building    Details of any retailer for the shop have not been released to the public however, it would be served by eleven parking spaces to the side with the creation of a delivery yard behind the premises.

Plans for the former pub building also include an extension and the installation of a cash machine.  The planning application submitted to the borough council proposes a mix of full time and part time jobs and that the store would open from 6am to 10pm every day.

Five two bedroom houses being built at the rear of the site remain in the revised planning application.   The buildings are understood to have been included to cover the costs of developing and renovating the former Bulls Head pub building which has roots dating back several hundred years.

A decision from borough council planners is expected shortly.
