Major scheme in Chesterfield to deliver 85 new homes


Friday 22nd June 2012

The 'Donut' in Chesterfield will be completely transformed.

Wilson Bowden plans to construct 85 new homes in Chesterfield as part of the £50m Northern Gateway project.

The developer has been given initial approval to regenerate the Donut roundabout area, one of the main gateways of Chesterfield town centre, with work scheduled to get underway late next year, but not before a public consultation takes place today and tomorrow.

Local residents are being given the opportunity to offer their views on plans for the scheme, which aside from new homes, also includes retail space, restaurants, an 80-bed hotel, a supermarket and a cinema.

The Northern Gateway public exhibition takes place in Unit 9 of the Pavements Shopping Centre today (Friday) from 10am to 4pm and Saturday 10am to 4pm.

David Ward, from Wilson Bowden Developments' planning division, commented: "We're keen to work with residents in Chesterfield to make sure we deliver a quality development that takes account of their views and meets the requirements of the Council's plans for the area.

"We've got some great images of how the scheme may look and detailed layouts that we will be happy to share and discuss with local people."

John Burrows, leader of Chesterfield Borough Council, said: "The Northern Gateway is going to be one of the biggest developments we've had in Chesterfield for many years."
