Chevin Homes builds quality new homes throughout Derbyshire and the East Midlands. It focuses on small bespoke developments mainly featuring two or three bedroomed starter homes, bungalows and large luxury residents; creating intimate communities and relaxed living spaces.
After attending the Derby Property Summit and hearing about the continued work of Marketing Derby to promote the city, we decided this was an organisation that we wanted to support, while we also recognised the benefits of being associated.
We see business in Derby to continue to grow mainly due to the stability of employment by key organisations. In the future the redevelopment of some redundant office spaces within the city to create residential units may provide some much needed mid-week night time activity in the city. However we feel that it is still important to provide city centre office space to allow business to operate and thus create a balance.
The University's commitment to orientate accommodation and new facility within the city will add this, however from a cultural perspective, it’s likely that the decision of the redevelopment of key areas of the city, Assembly Room & Duckworth Square, and the timing of this, will be the key factor in the overall success of this of turning Derby into a leading cosmopolitan city.
Derby is a compact and diverse city which has always maintained a good standard of living due to continued employment, a wide range of amenities and transport links, while being conveniently located a short distance for rural area such as the peak district. So overall it provides a quality work-life balance.
