Plans for 650 new homes near Chesterfield at Mastin Moor have been recommended for the green light by the Borough Council.
The site encompasses 46.2ha of mainly agricultural land.
The 650 dwellings include elderly care and specialist accommodation, and would be placed on land to the south of Worksop Road (east and west of Bolsover Road) extending to Woodthorpe Road.
A new local centre featuring retail space, health facilities and community services is also proposed.
Chatsworth Settlement Trustees are behind the plans.
