825- Home Derbyshire Plans Lodged

A listed regeneration giant's plan to build 825 homes on the outskirts of a rural Derbyshire town has been formally submitted.825_homes
Birmingham-based St Modwen is also bidding to create a 20-acre commercial development on its Egstow Park site near Clay Cross.
The outline planning application has been submitted to North East Derbyshire District Council for consideration after the company held a public consultation last month (May 2017).

The proposal is for a mixed-use development comprising new homes, a neighbourhood centre, retail units and commercial development opportunities which could create up to 650 new jobs in the area, St Modwen said.

The new application will also include large areas of green open space and woodland for the community to enjoy.
The 204-acre brownfield site, six miles south of Chesterfield, was acquired by the developer in June 2013 after the previous owner went into administration.

The original planning permission for the site, which is for 980 homes and 270,000sqft of employment space, a hotel and a neighbourhood centre, is set to expire next summer.

A further reserved matters application for 160 homes on another section of the site was submitted by the company earlier this year. A decision has not yet been made by the council on whether to approve it.

Development manager Gregg Titley said: "We have made changes from the previously approved proposals to meet the current demand for housing and employment in the district and believe our plans will bring substantial economic and social benefits to the area."
