Derby City Council has granted outline planning approval for up to 800 homes and full planning permission for 245 homes.

The homes will be located on land north of Snelsmoor Lane, Chellaston.

The outline application also comprises a sustainable drainage system, a new primary school with playing fields, and open space, including the creation of a country park.

The planning officer concluded that the development represents “an acceptable mix of residential development, country park, primary school and all related highways and drainage improvements”. It was also deemed, consequently, to comply with several core strategy policies.  

Therefore, the officer advised that the director of strategy partnerships, planning and streetpride should be authorised to negotiate a section 106 agreement and that the director of governance should be authorised to enter into such an agreement.

He also said the director of strategy partnerships, planning and streetpride should “grant permission upon the resolution of all outstanding technical issues and the conclusion of the above Section 106 Agreement”.

The section 106 requirements include 10 per cent affordable housing, split into 70 per cent affordable rent and 30 per cent shared ownership.

The planning control committee document, which includes the planning officer’s report, can be found here on the Derby City Council website.
