Working for Chevin Homes Planning & Design Practice has successfully secured planning permission for an attractive new development of 8 semi-detached affordable bungalows with associated biodiversity enhancements and landscaping in Chellaston on the south side of Derby, writes Richard Pigott, Director at Planning & Design Practice.

The site was acquired by Chevin Homes but had been earmarked for ecological enhancements as part of a recently completed scheme for 34 dwellings by Redrow Homes. However, with the assistance of Ramm Sanderson ecologists and Golby and Luck Landscape Architects, we were able to demonstrate that the site could be partially developed, with the remaining land being better managed as part of a robust long-term plan to secure significant ecological improvements to the land to the rear of the dwellings. South Derbyshire District Council agreed that the benefits of the provision of 8 new affordable dwellings would be significant and that no other significant harm would result from the proposals. It is understood that Chevin Homes have discussed the proposals with a number of the Registered Providers operating in the district, and that a delivery partner will be identified in the near future.

Planning & Design Practice have a successful history working with Chevin Homes, a renowned local house builder. Working on their behalf we were successful in securing planning permission for the redevelopment of Brookside Farm, Breadsall, Derbyshire.

This development comprises a mix of just five exclusive barn conversions, new build homes and restoration of the original farmhouse. The site is located in a beautifully secluded backwater position with outstanding views and picturesque countryside walks, which is just 5 minutes drive away from Derby.

Having secured planning permission for the site in 2018 for Chevin Homes we were delighted that their development won ‘Residential Development of the Year’ at the East Midlands Business Link ‘Brick Awards’ 2021.

Chase Farm is a bespoke courtyard development of just eight truly unique homes situated on the edge of the Peak District at Ambergate, Derbyshire within the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site and was completed earlier this year.

This project was an exciting one for us to work on as it comprised of the redevelopment of a brownfield site with a derelict social club and car park, two 19th century cottages and an agricultural barn. The whole site had been neglected for the last few years and the buildings were rapidly degrading. We were successful in achieving full planning permission for one new detached dwelling on the footprint of the old social club, a terrace of 4 new dwellings, the restoration of the two cottages and the conversion of the barn to a dwelling.

We work with developers of all sizes, from small companies working on one property at a time to large housebuilders and commercial organisations where multi-million pound schemes are the norm.
