Plans for a mixed use development on land to the south of Colliery Road, Creswell have been recommended for approval by Bolsover District Council.

Approval is sought for approximately 300 dwellings, circa 0.8 hectares of employment land, convenience retail, a community scale leisure facility, medical centre, and the upgrade of Colliery Road.

The medical centre will be built on the site of a vacant church building that is to be demolished.

A council document released ahead of the final decision on the plans reads: “It is considered by officers that the regeneration of brownfield land, and the economic benefits and social benefits that might be achieved by granting permission for this application also weigh heavily in favour of approval.”
