Chesterfield has a number of key development opportunities due to come to fruition during the next few years. To help make sure that investment in Chesterfield continues to happen Chesterfield Borough Council has secured funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to deliver the Creating Links project.
The Creating Links project allows Chesterfield Borough Council to take a proactive approach to drive forward the regeneration projects and make sure that regeneration and future investment in Chesterfield continues to take place. The project seeks to maximise the opportunities available from this regeneration activity for Chesterfield communities by attracting businesses to the area and creating jobs for local residents.
The Creating Links Project aims to:
- help to create employment opportunities for local people in the construction and operation of the developments,
- help to facilitate training of local people to enable them to apply for the jobs created and
- enable local businesses to compete for contracts arising from the development
To find out more about the current and future regeneration sites in Chesterfield.

Please note there will be an open event at the Stone Gravels depot on 4 March from 1.30pm to 5pm and 6 March 9am to 12pm.
