Rayner Davies Architects have submitted a planning application for 32 new dwellings in the market town of Bolsover in Derbyshire.
Dragonfly Developments are behind the project which aims to deliver high quality affordable housing. It follows Dragonfly’s recent successful developments in South Normanton and Pinxton.
A range of properties are proposed from 2 bed bungalows to four bed detached houses on the 3.6-acre site.
The site was formally industrial space, all of which has been vacant for some time. Remediation of the contaminated ground is planned.
Engineering support was provided by DICE and 24/three acted as Project Managers.
Traditional materials are proposed – materials that are in keeping with the surrounding area such as red masonry brickwork, roof tiles and light-coloured surface treatments to create a pleasant environment for residents.
Brick detailing has been used to create interest and variety along with cladding to key properties. A large tree-lined pedestrian boulevard is proposed running through the site. Front gardens will be bound by low level hedges and railings. 3 units will be allocated as affordable housing in line with local planning policy.
Work is expected to start later this year.
