Plans have been submitted for the first phase of a multi-million-pound waterside development at Staveley.

Derbyshire County Council has put forward proposals for the Staveley Waterside Development at Staveley Basin.

The proposals have been drawn-up as part of the Staveley Town Deal – a £25 million government-funded regeneration programme for the area.

Planning permission is being sought from Chesterfield Borough Council to construct a 2-storey building, offering flexible space for new and existing small businesses, some retail use, and a food and beverage opportunity, with indoor and outdoor dining space, along with an access road, and mooring space.

£2.664 million has been earmarked from the Staveley Town Deal fund, subject to planning approval, for the first phase of the development on the Staveley Basin site, off Eckington Road, which forms part of the Markham Vale estate – the county council’s flagship regeneration site off M1 junction 29a.

Councillor Tony King, the county council’s cabinet member for clean growth and regeneration, said: “We’ve put together proposals for an exciting new development which will help to bring jobs to the area and boost the visitor economy.

“Derbyshire County Council has been working alongside partners over a number of years to improve the Staveley Basin area and the Staveley Town Deal has given us a great opportunity to turn our ideas into reality, using our expertise from Markham Vale to create high-quality business accommodation as well as a visitor destination that people from near and far can enjoy.”
