Thank you for visiting our dedicated website with details of our proposals for the land off Kedleston Road and Memorial Road, in Allestree.
In 2014, Catesby Estates submitted an application for up to 400 high-quality new homes and a convenience store. That application (AVA/2014/0928) was accompanied by a robust evidence base, including a Heritage Setting Assessment and a Transport Assessment amongst others, demonstrating why the development proposals were appropriate. It was rejected by Amber Valley's Planning Board in July 2015, and is currently the subject of an appeal.
In January 2016, Catesby Estates submitted an application to build only 195 homes, as an alternative proposal, without prejudice to the earlier application. You can view and comment on the application on Amber Valley's planning register using the reference AVA/2015/1243.
The proposals will help to address the area's severe housing shortage in a way that respects the local environment and makes a positive contribution to the future of Allestree. Our plans would also enhance local roads to alleviate congestion, help reduce flood risk by reducing the flow to properties downstream of the site during periods of flooding, and make financial contributions where appropriate to improve existing facilities and schools.
You can use the pages on this website to find out more about the proposals. If you think the area needs new homes in this location or would be interested in purchasing a house, leave your details on our Contact Page and we will be in touch.
