Plans submitted for a range of new leisure facilities in North Wingfield – Destination Chesterfield

By Josh Marais

North Wingfield residents could soon benefit from several new leisure facilities, with plans submitted to develop land off Williamthorpe Road.

Local developer, Inspire Design and Development is involved in the proposals, which include a pub, hotel, restaurant, wedding venue and nursery.

The proposal forms part of one of the company’s existing projects in the area, a large development which has already approved outlines for over 500 homes between North Wingfield and Holmewood.

Inspire Design and Development’s role includes promoting the project, managing the design team and running the planning application. The plans will provide much needed recreational facilities in the area, especially for local residents.

Calum Reford, Graduate Planner at Inspire Design and Development Ltd., commented: “The proposal aims to create a bespoke character area to create a local landmark that will be in harmony with the existing and future built environment.

“The development represents a significant social and economic benefit to the area and will provide a supply of hospitality, whilst supporting new housing currently being built.

“The proposals will also provide employment opportunities for local people, giving them access to a new career in a unique location.

“This development can provide a statement building that frames the entrance to help establish a sense of place and provide a facility the region can be truly proud of.”

The company also said the design of the new leisure development is inspired by ‘traditional rural Derbyshire farm buildings’, with ‘a series of pitched-roof pavilions and outdoor seating/dining areas with views over Chesterfield and the Crooked Spire Church”.

Based in nearby Clay Cross, Inspire Design and Development has extensive experience in planning, designing and delivering development projects.

Having successfully issued high-quality planning approvals, the company ensures that each of the projects it undertakes is commercially robust, paving the way for excellent, efficient and exciting places for local people to live, work and play in their community.

The senior management team collectively has approximately 100 years of brownfield redevelopment experience.

Inspire Design & Development Ltd. supports the town’s marketing and economic growth through Chesterfield Champions, a network of over 200 organizations across Chesterfield and North Derbyshire.
