New access bridge approved for Chesterfield Waterside

Planning permission has been granted by Chesterfield Borough Council to build an access bridge in the multi-million pound project.

The bridge will allow access to The Park area of the Waterside development. The Park already houses 19 homes, but there are plans for the construction of up to 170 two, three and four-bedroom homes in 2019.

Managing Director of the Bolsterstone Group Plc the company leading the £340 million Chesterfield Waterside project, Peter Swallow has said: “I am delighted that Chesterfield Borough Council has granted permission to create a new access bridge and road to what will become The Park neighbourhood within the Chesterfield Waterside development. This represents yet another important milestone for the project, and we are now in a position to progress proposals to develop new homes in The Park area of the site next year.”

When completed, Waterside will have 5 residential neighbourhoods and numerous exciting retail, leisure and business opportunities. The innovative mixed-use regeneration project covers a 16-hectare site, which is recognised as the 47th largest regeneration schemes in the UK.
