A major mixed-use development scheme in South Derbyshire that will create 300 new homes has been granted planning permission.

Pegasus Group provided a range of services, including planning, urban design, landscape, heritage, retail and economics, in order to help secure the permission on behalf of Harworth Group, from South Derbyshire District Council.

The development at Woodville, near Swadlincote, will see the former Dyson coal and clay works transformed for up to 300 homes as well as a local centre including a 17,222 sq ft food store, 7,534 sq ft restaurant/fast food eatery, 5,920 sq ft pub as well as 21,527 sq ft of employment land consisting of research and development and/or light industrial uses. There is also set to be 43,055 sq ft of general industrial uses and 86,111 sq ft set aside for storage and distribution.
