Coronavirus (COVID-19) - how it is affecting our services

Enterprise centre

Enterprise centre

A new enterprise centre is proposed on part of the Holywell Cross car park, locally known as the 'donut'.  


Working with Whittam Cox Architects, we have submitted proposals and designs for planning approval for a new centre that will complement our Dunston and Tapton Innovation Centres

This will be a state of the art, environmentally friendly building, providing high-quality offices in a range of sizes (26 to 120 square metres) over three floors, whilst incorporating a number of sustainable features. It will offer high specification work space with access to in-house support services to encourage and nurture start-up and early stage businesses in a wide variety of industry sectors. 

The centre is designed to appeal to businesses that benefit from a central location and is of particular interest to those involved in professional and financial services, innovation and communication technology.  It will be easy to access by car, is on a number of town and city bus routes, and is close to Chesterfield train station. 

At the same time we have launched a procurement exercise to select a design and build contractor to deliver the scheme.  Companies interested in this opportunity can access details via the In-tend e-tendering portal.  All communications (including submission of Tenders) should be carried out via the e-Tendering Portal.  Details can also be found on the Source Derbyshire website.  The deadline for initial submissions is 8 November 2018.
