Rolls-Royce selects Muse Development for UK mixed-use scheme

Muse Developments, an urban regeneration division of Morgan Sindall, has been appointed as development partner by Rolls-Royce on a new mixed-use project in Nottinghamshire, UK.

Working alongside Rolls-Royce, Muse will develop the scheme next to its existing production facility at Watnall Road in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire.

The development will feature a 67-acre business park and up to 81 acres of housing, as well as around 130 acres of greenbelt land.

Muse regional director Dan Needham said: "This project has the potential to become one of the success stories for the East Midlands region in the coming years, bringing many new jobs, new business and a new community to Hucknall."

Muse will manage the planning process for the site and will be responsible for infrastructure delivery for completion of the first phase by 2014.

Plans also include a new factory and employment units that will be implemented simultaneously along with 800 new homes.
