The Borough is experiencing high levels of growth and significant interest in housing development with a requirement to deliver a significant number of new homes.

We are an award winning and innovative council with a reputation for delivering high quality value for money services and exceeding our residents’ expectations. Rushcliffe is a great place for sport and home to a number of facilities such as Nottingham Forest football ground, Trent Bridge Cricket ground and Holme Pierrepont water sports centre.
