Chesterfield Champions


Nineteen47 is an award winning planning, urban design and visualisation practice committed to innovative ideas and supportive advice.

At nineteen47, as well as being design obsessives and planning perfectionists, they have all got one thing in common, a desire to do things differently. Bringing together forward thinking planning and design advice backed up by old-school values. Everything they stand for seeks to ensure outstanding results for their clients.

In Chesterfield, they have supported the Waterside regeneration scheme, working with Avant Homes to provide a new contemporary and distinctive housing scheme close to the town centre. Through their teams work on this and other projects they develop positive working relationships with local authorities to move projects forward across a range of sectors including housing, commercial and education. Their passion is to help clients deliver attractive, viable and sustainable developments, that contribute to enhancing the places that we live in.

Richard Walshaw, Design Director at Nineteen47, says: “Nineteen47 has grown out of the collaborative work of a team which has extensive experience in the development sector and loves to explore new places and opportunities.”

“Our team relishes a challenge, particularly where it allows us to think outside the box, providing dynamic advice, which supports the evolution of development proposals as they progress through the planning process onto site.”

“Our clients value our honest advice. We enjoy working with multidisciplinary teams to bring together a vision for sites, incorporating planning and design advice. We then bring these proposals to life through visualisation, allowing stakeholders to envisage how our schemes can enhance an area and realise its potential.”
