A HOUSING developer has revealed details of plans to build more than 200 homes in South Derbyshire.
St Modwen Homes has won approval for a new residential scheme on land off the A444 Burton Road.
The site will be made up of 215 two, three, four and five-bedroom detached and semi-detached properties.
The scheme was given the green light only weeks ago and work is now being undertaken to clear the site before building work begins.
Guy Gusterson, managing director of St Modwen Homes, said: “We have submitted a planning application for 215 new homes at Cadley Hill in order to meet the demand for high-quality houses in the local area.
“The new development will provide a wide range of properties to suit people on all stages of the property ladder.
“The new residential development at Cadley Hill will mark St Modwen Homes’ eighth development since the company’s inception two years ago.”
The new homes will form part of St Modwen’s broader multi-million pound regeneration of the 25-acre site, which will include 95,000 sq ft of small office, light industrial, storage and distribution premises.
As part of the development, St Modwen will also contribute to primary school provision and recreational facilities in the area.
Plans for a new access to facilitate the development were passed in September.
St Modwen already had approval for the housing development for the land close to Swadlincote Lane, in Castle Gresley, and was then given permission for the latest round of proposals.
The decision saw plans for a new access and spine road from Burton Road with associated drainage – as well as an extension of an existing pond and the building of a substation – given the go-ahead.
Landscaping is proposed adjacent to the spine road, and the enlargement of the pond is required to remedy drainage issues.
