Approval granted for 143 new homes in Mastin Moor

A housebuilder has recently secured planning permission to build 143 homes for the first phase of a four phase development in Mastin Moor, near Staveley.

The 15 acres of land will be acquired by Harron Homes from the Devonshire Group, who support community growth through a variety of businesses and charities, as well as being custodians of heritage assets in Derbyshire and across the UK.

Devonshire Group will also provide a Construction Skills Hub which will become a practical base for construction training and provide work experience for future learners. Learn more about the Construction Skills Hub here.

As part of its planning application, Harron has committed to the inclusion of a selection of two and four-bedroom affordable homes.

The development will also consist of a tree-lined spine road linking the development to the local area and provide publicly accessible open space and landscaping, significantly enhancing the biodiversity on site.

Located in the picturesque village of Mastin Moor, the development is to be called Low Ridding and will be made up of a collection of two, three four and five-bedroom homes, perfect for families looking for a slice of peaceful rural life with all the conveniences of modern living.

Surrounded by peaceful countryside and only a short 12-mile drive from the Peak District there’s plenty to explore in the local area and with great links to neighbouring towns and cities such as Barlborough, Chesterfield and Sheffield, it’s a great spot for commuters with easy access to the M1.

Infrastructure work will commence from May 2024 with the first homes looking to be built later this autumn.

Andrew Priestley, Land Director for Harron Homes North Midlands, said, “Mastin Moor is the perfect location for commuters and families wanting a change of pace. We’re excited to make progress on Low Ridding, and we look forward to sharing more updates soon.”

The Devonshire Group supports the marketing and economic growth of the town through Chesterfield Champions, a network of over 200 organisations across Chesterfield and North Derbyshire.
