Former Newbold Community School (Lower Site)

Planning Brief for the Former Newbold Community School (Lower Site)

Chesterfield Borough Council has consulted people and groups interested in the development of the former Newbold Community School (Lower site). The council has drawn up a planning brief for the 2ha (5 acre) site which is allocated in the Local Plan for the development of new homes. The brief sets out the council’s proposals for the site in accordance with the local plan. It requires any future developer to:

  • make up to around a third of homes affordable;
  • make sure the site provides homes in a well-designed layout which:
  • respects the nearby setting of the Eyre Chapel, the adjacent conservation area and trees and the surrounding area;
  • provides good quality open space, a play area and landscaping;
  • ensures that people are encouraged to use sustainable transport, by creating good links to walking and cycling routes;
  • minimises energy use with good insulation and by generating renewable energy for at least 10% of the homes on the site.
