Regeneration scheme moves forward as new Clay Cross homes secure planning permission

Chesterfield housebuilder Avant Homes is to build 97 new homes at Egstow Park in Clay Cross, after North East Derbyshire Borough Council granted planning permission for the development.

Located off Market Street in the Derbyshire town, the £23m development will form part of the wider Egstow Park regeneration scheme that will bring more than 825 new homes alongside offices, shopping areas, a hotel, public spaces and woodland.

Avant Homes acquired the 10-acre site from St Modwen plc and plans to commence groundworks immediately with the first homes expected to be ready for occupation in July 2020. Called Egstow Park, the development will include a mixture of three and four-bedroom modern, design-led homes across 10 different housetypes. Of the 97 homes that will be built, 11 have been designated as affordable housing.

Avant Homes Central Managing Director, Stuart Rowlands said: “We’re very pleased that planning permission has been granted for our homes at Egstow Park. It is a significant regeneration scheme for Clay Cross and the wider region, and we’re excited to be a part of it. As a Chesterfield-based business we’re proud to continue investing in the area through the construction of much-needed quality homes whilst creating hundreds of jobs for local people in the process.

“The development is in a prime location, close to the centre of Clay Cross and its range of amenities. It is well positioned to provide easy access to the growing town of Chesterfield, meaning Egstow Park is going to be a highly sought-after new residential neighbourhood.”

St Modwen development director, Nick Whittingham, said: “We are very pleased to complete the sale of this prime site to Avant Homes and to see the development get planning. This further accelerates our regeneration of the former Biwater Pipes brownfield site by opening up the Market Street end of the scheme to provide further serviced housing land and areas of public open space.”
