Latest: Saltergate multi-storey works begin as part of £20 million Northern Gateway Scheme.

A revised Northern Gateway scheme was approved by Chesterfield Borough Council in July 2016 to improve the town’s northern entrance and create 489 jobs.

The new plan will see:

  • A major refurbishment of Saltergate multi-storey car park, which will see it modernised and the number of spaces increase from 408 to 529
  • A business enterprise centre built on part of the Holywell Cross (Donut) car park for start-up and small and medium sized businesses
  • Environmental and street improvements to Elder Way and part of Knifesmithgate, including wider pavements to create a terrace area

The £19.9 million revised project also includes the £10.5 million redevelopment of the Co-op store by Central England Co-operative and their partners Jomast Developments.

They already have planning permission for a leisure scheme that will include:

  • Six ground floor restaurants
  • A hotel on the first and second floors
  • A health and fitness centre in the basement

Premier Inn and Beefeater are two of the companies that will occupy the site.

The revised Northern Gateway project will be funded by a Sheffield City Region Infrastructure Fund grant of £5.83 million and £3.5 million from Chesterfield Borough Council, with the Co-op redevelopment being paid for by the private sector.

  • Work on Saltergate multi-storey car park is due to start  November 2016 and to be completed in summer 2017.
  • The environmental improvements to Elder Way and Knifesmithgate will take place during 2017.
  • Work on the enterprise centre is expected to begin in summer 2018 and be completed by summer 2019, subject to planning permission being given.

Sheffield City Region has already approved a £5.83 million grant in principle for the revised scheme but a full business case can now be submitted, which is required to get the final sign off for the funding to be paid.
