A hybrid planning application which would see over 1000 new homes constructed on land north of Snelsmoor Lane, Chellaston, has been tipped for approval by Derby City Council.

The proposal was initially submitted in 2013, in response to a draft allocation in the then emerging Local Plan and has undergone a period of negotiations and amendments.

Now, outline permission is being sought for up to 800 dwellings while full permission is being sought for 245 dwellings.

The new development is to be known as ‘Snelsmoor Grange’.

The scheme, from Bellway Homes and Clowes Developments, also includes a country park and primary school.

The development site measures 66.07 hectares and comprises a series of agricultural fields and derelict farm buildings.
