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 has taken 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

- World-famous Dame Barbara Hepworth sculpture to be permanently sited in Basin Square

- Avant Homes is set to build 173 new homes at a new £360m development in Chesterfield after planning permission was approved by Chesterfield Borough Council in June 2019.
Named Waterside Quarter, the development will form part of ‘The Park’ area of the scheme and will be Avant Homes largest site in the Chesterfield area to date. Waterside Quarter will include a mixture of Avant Homes’ contemporary, two, three and four-bedroom homes, designed for modern living, offering buyers 11 different house types to choose from.
