Key Project Information

  • A strategic site in South Derbyshire being developed for residential, retail and leisure use through the Local Plan.
  • Harworth Group’s Cadley Park is a development comprising 600 new homes across three parcels of land, with the wider project including a country park, two 9-hole golf courses, a driving range and 4,000 sq ft of commercial/leisure development that includes a family pub.

This is a major milestone for Harworth Group in what has been a long-term programme of planning one of the Midlands’ largest new residential developments. Developing coherent plans across a number of discrete parcels always poses a challenge but Pegasus and South Derbyshire have worked extremely well together to bring them forward
