Chesterfield Waterside is one of the largest regeneration projects in the UK
Chesterfield Waterside is an innovative and sustainable £300 million scheme and is currently the 47th largest regeneration project in the UK. Chesterfield Waterside has risen from the remains of the old Trebor factory and is a major mixed-use regeneration programme to the immediate north of the town centre. The site straddling the River Rother and Chesterfield Canal and alongside the A61 will provide a thriving and successful new part of the town centre.
The Chesterfield Waterside development will include:
- The creation of a new community with 1,500 modern houses and apartments
- New employment opportunities in Grade A office accommodation situated directly adjacent to the mainline railway station (London St Pancras 1 hr 55 mins)
- Shops, cafes and bars around the new canal basin and public square
- A network of open spaces and a park along a rejuvenated Chesterfield Canal and River Rother
Construction is already complete on the first part of Chesterfield Waterside, a new canal basin officially opened in October 2009. The basin will form the hub of activity at the southern end of the development and will eventually be connected to the River Rother and from there to Chesterfield Canal by a lock, allowing access for canal boats.
