About Destination Chesterfield

Growth Sculpture Horns bridge Roundabout

Destination Chesterfield delivers a number of marketing campaigns which are helping to improve the economic prosperity of Chesterfield by promoting it as a contemporary destination to inward investors and supporting existing businesses.

The project was established in 2011, funded through support from the European Regional Development Fund, Local Businesses and Chesterfield Borough Council.

The local business community plays a central role in the campaign’s success by leading an independent board of Directors and pledging their support through the Chesterfield Champions Scheme.
