  • About the site

    Land Off Derby Road, Wingerworth

    Taylor Wimpey is proud to be involved in securing the future regeneration of The Avenue area with the Derby Road proposals.

    Taylor Wimpey is in control of a proportion of this site, equal to about 11 hectares, which adjoins Derby Road to the west. This would form the front to The Avenue, providing an attractive entrance to the wider site.

    The land currently consists of fields used for private recreation, pony paddocks and small scale farming with an associated farm house (Cottagehill Farm). Outside the boundary of the Taylor Wimpey proposal are a number of local businesses including Wingerworth Tyres and the Hunloke Arms pub and a limited number of existing homes. The businesses and homes would not be affected by and are not included within the proposals.

    The site is located to the east of Wingerworth off Derby Road (A61) and has good access to existing services, shops and facilities and is well placed to conveniently access employment opportunities, rail links and more extensive facilities in the nearby Chesterfield and wider area, by bus. Chesterfield is close by, to the north; Tupton, Old Tupton and New Tupton lie to the south and to the east of the site is Grassmoor.

  • What's proposed

    Our proposals

    Our vision for our portion of the site has evolved through discussions with the Local Authority and the emergence of the Avenue Area Action Plan.

    Taylor Wimpey’s proposals will provide circa 250 much needed high quality homes in Wingerworth suitable for families, those trying to move up the property ladder, first time buyers, key workers and a range of residents.

    A small foodstore is also proposed for the site, designed to help meet local needs, increase choice and improve the local retail offer.

  • Community

    Community benefits from the development

    New homes enable the delivery of local improvements and new community facilities that could not otherwise be created or sustained. Seeking to create a valuable addition to Wingerworth, Taylor Wimpey believes its proposals can offer a wide range of benefits for both existing and new residents, including the following:

    • Approximately £1,700,000 investment from the New Home Bonus Scheme (NHBS) provided to North East Derbyshire District Council (NEDDC).
    • Taylor Wimpey will make investments in the local highway network to improve road safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. The plans will include a new roundabout on Derby Road, opposite Nottingham Drive,, created to ease congestion and allow ease of access to and from the site.
    • A range of new high quality family homes designed to meet local needs. The development will provide a proportion of affordable homes for groups such as key workers, the elderly, first time buyers and those taking the next step on the housing ladder.
    • The development will bring new residents to the area who will provide an economic boost to the local area, year on year. This will help to support existing local shops and services in and around Wingerworth.
    • The small foodstore and allocated employment sites will help create new full and part time jobs within Wingerworth and North East Derbyshire.
    • Taylor Wimpey’s site is part of The Avenue regeneration project, a central part of North East Derbyshire Council’s regeneration strategy set to transform this part of North East Derbyshire and create a sustainable development for future enjoyment.
    • Creation of new public greenspace for use by the whole community.
    • Enhanced pedestrian and cycle access to and through the site, encouraging sustainable transport methods for new and existing residents.
