Revitalising the Heart of Chesterfield - Consultation
Have your say on town centre regeneration plans
We’re investing in our town centre to make sure it thrives for generations to come.
The £10.28m Revitalising the Heart of Chesterfield scheme will transform the look, feel and flow of the town centre – creating a contemporary market town built on our proud history and heritage.
We want to hear your views on our plans, as part of a public consultation running from 24 May to 8 July 2022.
Our plans are at the concept stage, sharing your views through our online survey will help us to shape the detail and design of the next stage.
These web pages set out some of the key proposals – you can navigate through these using the sidebar or click the link on the bottom of each page to be taken to the next page.
You can download the full draft design and the public consultation documents below.
You can also view the proposals – and access paper copies of the plans and survey – at an exhibition being held at the Visitor Information Centre which you can access Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
We’re focusing on the key areas of Rykneld Square, Spire Walk, Corporation Street, Burlington Street, Market Square and New Square.
The work will be carried out in phases – starting later this year and due for completion in 2025.
- Significant improvements to Chesterfield’s historic market grounds
- Re-imagined town centre spaces that can be used for attractions like markets, festivals, events and cultural celebrations
- Upgrades to Rykneld Square to help frame the iconic Crooked Spire as a key attraction
- More greenery, new paving, seating, lighting, signposting and street furniture to create better-looking and better-connected spaces
- Improved lighting and digital connectivity
Together with the major refurbishment of Stephenson Memorial Hall on Corporation Street (which houses the Pomegranate Theatre and Chesterfield Museum) the project is being brought forward thanks to almost £20m which Chesterfield Borough Council secured from the Government’s levelling up fund.
