St. Modwen gets green light for mixed-use scheme at Egstow Park, creating over 650 jobs in the area

National developer St. Modwen has received planning permission for a mixed-use development, comprising 825 homes and eight hectares of commercial space, at Egstow Park in Chesterfield.

As well as further housing and a neighbourhood centre, the new phase of development will bring more retail and commercial space to the area, with as many as 680 jobs expected to be created as a result. The scheme will also include large areas of green open space and woodland for the community to enjoy.

Following extensive public consultation, the planning approval allows St. Modwen to continue investing in the region, building on the Marston’s pub and the first phase of residential development that have already been delivered.

Gregg Titley, Development Director at St. Modwen, said: “We’re really pleased with the decision, as it allows us to continue to build much-needed housing, but also presents the opportunity for further inward investment in the area.

“We’re experiencing good demand for commercial space in the Midlands region as a whole, and we’re confident Egstow Park will be no different. We’re excited to play a part in attracting new businesses to the area, which will create a significant number of jobs for local people and help build a community in which people can live, work and enjoy their surroundings.”

Sean Bremner, partner at CPP, agents for the site, added: “This new planning permission will create much-needed commercial space in the Chesterfield area. We’re confident the space will benefit the residents of Chesterfield and expect it will be snapped up quickly.”
