Newbold back garden plan gets approval for six new homes

Plans for six new family-sized homes in a leafy suburb of the town have won approval from Chesterfield Council.
Two four-bedroomed detached houses and four three-bedroomed semi-detached homes can now be built in a Newbold back garden plot.
“We anticipate there will be big demand for these stylish and spacious homes, which will sit in carefully landscaped grounds and be in keeping with the area,” said Alistair Haxton, MD of Chesterfield architecture practice Haxton Koyander, who have created the scheme.
“Plans have been designed to protect the privacy and outlook of nearby homes. None of the new properties will overlook neighbourhood ones and all protected trees will be maintained.”
Haxton Koyander’s client, the owner of a private house off Lancaster Road, is creating the development within his extensive grounds. The development plot is almost the size of Chesterfield football pitch.
“We are delighted that Chesterfield Borough Council planners and councillors have worked with us to bring this project to a successful conclusion. It is in line with the council’s Local Plan, which identified a need for new housing in the Borough and aims to deliver a thousands of homes by 2031,” said Mr Haxton, whose practice is based on Saltergate.
In addition, the design will improve road safety by providing a 2m wide footway along a stretch of Lancaster Road which currently has no pedestrian walkway.
