Chesterfield Waterside is one of the largest regeneration projects in the UK

Chesterfield Waterside is an innovative and sustainable £320 million scheme and is currently the 47th largest regeneration project in the UK.  The development 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.

Chesterfield’s £320million Waterside scheme is set to take a major step forward following the award of a £2.7million Sheffield City Region Infrastructure Fund (SCRIF) grant.

The grant, which was secured by Chesterfield Borough Council in partnership with developers Chesterfield Waterside Limited, has enabled the first phase of the development’s £75 million Basin Square scheme to be brought forward by the site’s developers.


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

Phase 1 – Basin Square

  •  £75 million mixed-use development over 58,800sqm
  •  Canal Basin already constructed
  •  310 private rented sector apartments – 1/2 bed apartments with ground floor retail space, circa 1500sqm
  •  Multi-storey car park – 442 spaces
  •  Office buildings –  2,500sqm of B1 and 525sqm A1/A4
  •  84-bed hotel, plus ground floor A3/A4
  •  World-famous Dame Barbara Hepworth sculpture to be permanently sited in Basin Square
  • Expected to be home to approximately 300 jobs.

Next Steps

  • Phase 1 is due to start on site in August 2018
  • A second residential phase comprising 150 new homes will progress on the same timeline further along the site
