The site is situated off Worsop Lane on the southern edge of Rainworth. Rainworth if a village split between the Newark and Sherwood and the Mansfield districts of Nottinghamshire.
The site is former Green Belt land to the east of the Archer Public House historically used for agricultural purposes. Given the site's location on the edge of Rainworth the site has been promoted through the emerging Newark and Sherwood Core Strategy supporting its removal from the Green Belt and allocation for residential development. This was supported within the emerging Core Strategy which proposed a review of the Green Belt in this area to facilitate the delivery of sufficient residential development to satisfy the needs of Rainworth moving forward. The Core Strategy was subsequently adopted on 29 March 2011. In light of the Core Strategy the site was also promoted in the Allocations and Development Management DPD to secure formal allocation of this site. This again supported the Council's approach and sought to allocate this site, alongside the neighbouring land holding,
A planning application was submitted and subsequently approved for development of up to 130 new homes. The site was sold to Taylor Wimpey in 2015 and development on site has begun.
