Hundreds of new houses look set to be built in South Derbyshire after planning for the initial phase of the strategic site was approved.
Pegasus Group is managing and promoting a major project in Swadlincote which is being developed for residential, retail and leisure use through the Local Plan.
South Derbyshire District Council approved plans that will enable works including roundabout access, to the spine road, and all associated earthworks, drainage and landscaping at Cadley Park, Swadlincote.
Pegasus Group is managing the application on behalf of the Harworth Group, who will develop the site to facilitate the sale of residential parcels.
Pegasus Group has subsequently submitted a reserved matters application to build 400 houses on the site, on behalf of Avant Homes.
The new roundabout will be built off the A514 William Nadin Way, on a main road through the town to serve the proposed Cadley Park development. Outline planning permission for the scheme was granted in June.
Steve Lewis-Roberts, planning director at Pegasus Group’s East Midlands office, said: “The approval of infrastructure works, to include the new roundabout at Swadlincote, will allow for the swift delivery of residential parcels.”
Once complete, the development will include a children’s place space, sports pitches with changing facilities, a new urban park as well as pedestrian and cycle ways.
