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.
Avant Homes are progressing with the construction of 173 new homes on the former timber yard site off Brimington Road.
Henry Boot Construction have completed the construction of a new highway bridge which will provide the main access to the homes.
