In September the site was ravaged by fire that burned for nearly two months. The blaze was so huge, firefighters could not put it out. Instead, crews let the 8,000 tonnes of wood burn out.
Councillor Geoffrey Smith, Erewash Borough Council’s lead member for Regeneration and Planning, said: "This is a major planning application and an important part of its consideration is giving local people and businesses plenty of opportunity to make their comments and express their views, which will be taken into account before any decisions are made.
“We will provide regular updates to keep people informed throughout the process.
"This is the biggest proposed redevelopment scheme in recent history for Erewash and there will be a substantial number of issues to consider, people to consult with and information to be assessed.
"It will therefore take many months for the Council to consider the application.”
