Clowes Developments has completed a deal with a national housebuilder paving the way for a new 800-home development in Derby.

In March, Derby City Council granted planning permission for the Snelsmoor Grange scheme following a joint application by Clowes and Bellway.

Following the news of the successful application, Clowes has now sold its share of the land holdings to Bellway to enable the housebuilder to progress with the development, which will form part of Boulton Moor, a larger settlement on the outskirts of Chellaston.

Thomas Clowes, director at Clowes Developments, said: “We are delighted to finally see this scheme coming to fruition.

“The relationship between Clowes and Bellway spans many years, collaborating on a number of projects up and down the UK.

“Snelsmoor Grange has presented a unique opportunity to work together and deliver another exciting development.”

Paul Coleman, managing director at Bellway East Midlands, said: “Derby City Council’s resolution to grant planning permission for this new residential development in Chellaston is very pleasing for everyone who has worked incredibly hard to put forward the proposed scheme.

“We have worked very closely with Clowes to secure this agreement, building on our longstanding relationship with the team there.

“Bellway is looking forward to delivering the new Snelsmoor Grange development and will announce further details on the project once construction work begins on site in the near future.”

As well as the 800 homes, Snelsmoor Grange will have a village park and various social amenities.

The development will also provide a brand-new primary school, which is due to open in September 2023. It will be able to accommodate 315 primary and 39 nursery pupils.
