New flats to be built in Chesterfield

September 11, 2018 by  

A number of new flats are set to be built on a site in Chesterfield that used to be home to a pub, after the local council opted to give the plans the go-ahead.

The planning committee was set up by Chesterfield Borough Council and it gave the project the green light at a meeting held at the end of last month. It is set to see the former Travellers Rest pub turned into flats, with a total of 12 to be available in the finished block. No date has been set for work to begin, but brochure printing is often used to help sell new flats and homes across the country.

According to the Derbyshire Times, the documents submitted to the council to support the application state that the redevelopment of the building will not impact the lives of those in the area, its character or ecology in any negative way.

The project application concluded by stating:

“Although the loss of the pub is regrettable, the building is likely to continue to deteriorate and suffer from neglect without a viable use. The proposed residential use is considered to be appropriate in this sustainable location.”

One condition that the committee imposed before giving permission was that space must be set aside for car parking at the back of the block.
