The former headquarters of a district council are to be turned into 59 apartments.

Homes By Holmes has been granted planning permission to convert the former base of North East Derbyshire District Council, in Saltergate, Chesterfield.

After being stood vacant for more than four years, the building will undergo a multi-million-pound restoration over two years, with the aim of having the first properties available for occupation by around December 2022.

Jamal Khan, property research analyst at Homes By Holmes, said: “We are over the moon and really looking forward to giving this building a new lease of life.

“We have come to learn from talking to many locals that this former council building was a regular stop for the community, as it was the drop in point to discuss various issues with the council, from council tax to benefits and much more.

“We are proud that we are breathing life back into this building and once again it will benefit the local community through providing homes.”
