Council Approves New Homes Opposite Visitor Centre

Group News

Location: Wingerworth

Reserved matters approval has been granted for 80 new homes on land opposite The Avenue Visitor Centre, on Mill Lane, Wingerworth.

Pegasus Group secured the approval from North East Derbyshire District Council on behalf of Bellway Homes for the second phase of its development.

Our team, in the East Midlands office, provided planning supervision and urban design services for the scheme, which Pegasus Group Associate Architect and Urban Designer Joe Stenson said was ‘one of the more challengingly constrained sites we’ve worked on in recent times’.

He said: “Our layout design strategy included large areas of landscaping and public open space to link with the previous phase, alongside a substantial ecology corridor blending with the adjacent Avenue Washlands wetland reserve to the east.

“The scheme is one of the first approvals to include Bellway’s new Artisan collection of house types.”

James Hicks, Planning Director at Pegasus Group said: “It was a true team effort by Bellway, Pegasus Group, FPCR and Stephen Dakin Consulting Ltd, made that bit easier by excellent dialogue with NEDC.”

In recommending approval to councillors, planning officers said that the proposed scheme would deliver a ‘high-quality sustainable development’.

The development will consist of a range of detached and semi-detached properties of which 12 will be affordable, and on-site parking will be provided either at the front or the side of the houses.
