Our heritage is being complemented by modern developments that have already delivered new business units, office accommodation, innovation centres, modern housing, retail centres and new schools – but our plans don’t stop there.

Through our Town Centre Masterplan, Economic Growth Strategy and Covid-19 Economic Recovery Plan – together with therange of ambitious development plans outlined in this section – our plans are breathing new life into our borough, providing opportunities for generations to come.

Over the coming years, our town centre will continue to be transformed – enhancing the beating heart of our borough and making Chesterfield a great place to live, work, visit and invest.
