Bunny Lane  Development

Bunny Lane  Development

Bunny Lane will transform a derelict site in the heart of Keyworth into apartments, retail and office space, creating opportunities for businesses and to address the village’s shortage of single-living accommodation. 

The derelict site – which used to house a restaurant and the former British Legion building – sits on the corner Bunny Lane and Nottingham Road adjacent to The Square, which is home to many of the village’s main shops and businesses.

The Developer held an online 3 week consultation period which expired on 28th November 2021.

All comments, ideas and issues have been discussed with the development team.

Office Space

Bunny Lane will see the creation of five brand new office spaces ranging in size from 250sq ft to 850Sq ft, located on the ground floor.

The size of these units reflects the need for smaller commercial spaces for start-up businesses in the area within a high-quality and modern office environment.


The neighbourhood plan identifies a shortage of facilities for small independent retailers.

Our plans for 2 Bunny Lane include six brand new retail units ranging in size from 350sq ft to 1250sq ft, perfect for local retailers looking for a presence on this popular village high street. 

Housing Apartments

Keyworth has seen significant new development in recent years, but there is a lack of provision for single-living accommodation.

The 37 new apartments will offer high-quality modern living spaces for those wishing to live independently for the first time as well as those with mobility issues.

The one-bedroom homes will each feature open plan living spaces along with a double bedroom and bathroom. 


The proposals also include a private courtyard for residents to enjoy.

This outdoor space will be a great place for residents to socialise and relax. 

Underground Car Park

Our proposals for 2 Bunny Lane also include the provision of underground car parking with 27 spaces.

This space will also feature a cycle store for residents as well as the refuse area.
