It’s an area of Chesterfield that is already busy with new housing developments being constructed as part of the town’s Waterside Development. Now a planning application has been submitted to the borough council calling for 145 homes to be created on land currently occupied by a number of industrial units.

Woodall Homes Ltd is proposing the site, at Tapton Business Park on Brimington Road in Chesterfield, be flattened with the industrial and commercial units currently occupying the area demolished. Then the developer wants to build 145 homes, of which 84 will be houses and 61 will be apartments.

According to the planning documents, seen by Derbyshire Live, the dwellings would consist of a mixture of two, three and four-storey houses, while the apartments would be between three and five storeys with some of them having a garage on the ground floor. Two ground floor retail units would also be created as part of the proposals.

If planning permission is granted for the proposals to go ahead, eight of the houses would be one-bedroom “affordable” homes while 21 one-bedroom apartments would also be created. Twenty two-bedroom apartments would also occupy the site along with 10 one-bedroom apartments and 10 two-bedroom apartments, all of which would have a garage underneath the main living area on the ground floor.

Fourteen houses would have three bedrooms and the final 62 would be four-bedroom houses. As you would expect the properties would also come with added car parking spaces totalling 145, so each property would only be allocated a single car parking space.

The development, if given the green light, would continue the dramatic change in the area surrounding the Chesterfield Canal which has been earmarked for development for some time as part of the Waterside project. Chesterfield Waterside is a major change for the area between the railway lines just off Birmington Road and the A61 dual-carriageway.

As part of the £340 million development both residential and commercial buildings are planned with hundreds of homes already being built and lived in along the A61 and the commercial building known as One Waterside Place closing in on completion. This latest proposal will form the part of the Riverside East section of the project with the canal running between that and the Waterfront and Waterside Quarter areas.

Currently, the site Woodall Homes hopes will be its new housing and apartment development is occupied by a number of industrial and commercial business units of various sizes. Some of the units have been empty for some time while others remain in use. As part of the planning documents, the developer has described the buildings currently on site as “a mixture of brick-built buildings and steel-framed units, some of which are a combination of both and many of which are in poor condition and do not contribute to the character of the area.”

If planning permission is granted the site will be cleared and the current buildings will be demolished. Chesterfield Borough Council’s planning committee will now look over the documents contained within the application before deciding if the development can go ahead. A final decision date for the project has been set for Tuesday, November 29, 2022.
