Learn about our plans for an exciting new community in Derby

We have received outline planning consent from Derby City Council and South Derbyshire District Council for up to 142 homes on land on Deep Dale Lane in Derby.

 

We plan to build 50 homes on phase one, with planning for a further 91 homes on phase two in the planning. We will build a range of two, three, four and five bedroom terraced, semi-detached and detached houses.

 

10% of the properties on phase one will be made available for affordable housing and Taylor Wimpey North Midlands will also be making an off site contribution towards social housing through the local authority.

 

Work is due to start on site at Boundary Moor Gardens in Autumn 2021.

Masterplan

We want to create a thriving new community in Derby. Our plans for Boundary Moor Gardens are in line with the approved outline planning permission granted by Derby City Council in December 2016 and South Derbyshire District Council in February 2021.

The proposed layout of Boundary Moor Gardens has been thoughtfully designed to provide a distinctive character compared to surrounding neighbourhoods. We plan to build 50 homes on parcel one and a further 91 homes on parcel two. The parcels will consist of a range of two, three, four and five bedroom terraced, semi-detached and detached houses. Five of the properties will be made available for affordable housing and Taylor Wimpey North Midlands will also be making an off site contribution towards social housing through the local authority.


The development will be served by a single access road from Deep Dale Lane that will link the two parcels together. 

The open space has been thoughtfully designed to promote inclusivity and healthy lifestyles by encouraging activity and interaction. A Local Area for Play (LAP) will be located adjacent to the site entrance in parcel one. A more substantial Locally Equipped Area of Play (LEAP) will be provided as part of the open space within parcel two. 

Landscaping, including the planting of substantial numbers of trees, will also be undertaken across the site.

Streetscenes

Our ambition is to create a unique neighbourhood with its own identity but one that still complements the local area.

The appearance of the new homes will be reflective of the local area and we’ll use locally sourced materials to ensure the development is in keeping with existing houses nearby. 


Using the arrangement of the streets, spaces, building types and materials, our proposals are designed to create an attractive and welcoming place to live.

Homes proposed

We plan to build 50 homes on parcel one and a further 91 homes on parcel two at Boundary Moor Gardens. The parcels will consist of a range of two, three, four and five bedroom terraced, semi-detached and detached houses.

The homes are likely to be predominantly brick with tiled roofs, and new and innovative designs will be incorporated into the site to meet the demands for energy efficient, low carbon, easy to maintain, lifestyle-friendly housing.

 

So as to create positive and visually interesting street frontages, views of the houses from Deep Dale Lane will be filtered by a significant ‘green corridor’ of hedgerows and trees, allowing glimpses into the development.

Our proposals features

Previous use

Boundary Moor Gardens covers an area of 18 acres. The site is agricultural land located on the eastern side of Deep Dale Lane, adjacent to the Sinfin area of Derby.

The residential area of Sinfin to the north was generally developed through the 1960s to 1980s. Within it is located the Sinfin District Centre, primary and secondary schools and other local facilities. The A50 lies some 400 metres to the south of the site. 


It is bounded to the north by housing and agricultural land to the south and east. It is partly enclosed by hedgerows and a ditch runs along the southern boundary of the site. 


The site, in common with the surrounding area, is generally flat, with a gentle slope from the northwest down to the southeast and is accessible through a field gate on Deep Dale Lane. 


The A50 lies some 400 metres to the south of the site, and the southern and eastern edges of the site fall along the boundary between Derby City and South Derbyshire District.

 

Economic benefits

We want to deliver new homes that integrate with and enhance the local community.

In addition to the provision on-site of new affordable homes and new  

open space and play areas, the development will make significant financial contributions towards the provision of off-site community services, local facilities and infrastructure, to be used towards: 


• Improvements to the local road network  

• Increased capacity within local primary and secondary schools 

• Enhanced capacity within local health facilities


Amenities and facilities

We aim to support the communities in which we build. One way in which we do this is by providing new facilities that local people will benefit from.
As part of the wider village, a new local centre and primary school is proposed as part of the Infinity Garden Village, to be located at the junction of Wragley Way and Arleston Lane. Existing schools will be expanded, if necessary, until a new primary school is built.

Open space

Ensuring our residents and the local community have access to beautiful green open spaces is a key consideration.
Provision has been made for an area of green space incorporating sustainable drainage in the south-western corner of the site. This will also serve to enhance the ‘green frontage’ of the site.
