Clay Cross Open or Close
A number of projects have taken place in and around the town centre that have contributed towards meeting this vision. In 2013, we published an updated version of the Clay Cross Regeneration Framework (download from the documents section on this page), which aims to build upon the successes we have already achieved to further encourage regeneration work in the town.
We have four key regeneration objectives, which are:
- Empower and Engage the Local Community;
- Deliver Urban Quality;
- Create Living Neighbourhoods;
- Enable a Sustainable Economy
And several action areas which we focus upon to deliver these objectives:
- The Town Centre
- High Street
- Bridge Street Triangle
- The former Biwaters site
- Coney Green
Coalite Open or Close
The former Coalite site, which lies 1.5 miles north west of Bolsover town centre, has lain derelict since 2004. The site is split between the boundaries of North East Derbyshire and Bolsover District Councils and both authorities have given permission for the site to be cleaned up and redeveloped for residential and business use.
The residential development mainly lies within our boundaries, which includes plans for up to 660 homes, riverside park, museum and visitor centre and green cycleways and footpaths. More information can be found on the Coalite Regeneration website.
Dronfield Open or Close
The framework identifies key features of the town so that a picture is built up of the areas assets as well as opportunities for growth. They consider issues such as character, context, design, heritage, public realm and connectivity and will link with themes such as health, public art and green infrastructure.

Eckington Open or Close
The Eckington Town Centre Development Framework - Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) aims to guide future development in Eckington Town Centre to ensure that Eckington becomes a thriving, successful town.
It establishes clear planning and urban design guidance, providing a co-ordinated and consistent approach to the regeneration of Eckington. The SPD is a material consideration and should be given weight in considering development proposals.
Housing and Economic Development Strategy Open or Close
Housing and Economic Development Strategy 2015 - 2020
The council has previously had separate strategies for Economic Development and Housing but has decided to deliver a joint Strategy in recognition of the council's key priority to deliver growth in the district as part of its recently launched Growth Strategy.
The joint Housing and Economic Development strategy recognises that new jobs, new businesses and new housing are essential elements in creating an economically vibrant place where all people want to live and work. The proposed 8 objectives outlined in the strategy have been identified to tackle the challenges and opportunities facing the district over the next 5 years.
The eight objectives are:
- Supporting Enterprise - Maintaining and Growing the Business Base;
- Maximising Employment, Skills and Training Opportunities;
- Unlocking the Potential of Major Employment and Housing Sites;
- Realise the Vitality and Viability of Town Centres;
- Supporting the Rural Economy, including Tourism;
- Maximise Affordable Housing to Rent and Buy Through New Build and Making Best Use of Existing Stock;
- Enable People to Live in and Sustain Healthy Homes;
- Prevent and Reduce Homelessness.
If you would like to discuss the Strategy in more detail, please contact the Housing Strategy or Economic Development Team.

The Avenue Open or Close
The Avenue, formerly the Avenue Coking Works, located at Wingerworth, is an exciting and ambitious project. We have worked with the Homes and Communities Agency to transform 98 hectares of heavily polluted industrial land back into a place that can be used and enjoyed by both people and wildlife. That’s an area the size of about 200 football pitches!
We produced the Avenue Area Strategic Framework (AASF), which sets out a vision to create a high quality mixed development – including homes, employment, leisure facilities, transport links and green spaces which will serve the population for years to come. The aim of the framework is to make sure all future development meets local need, and is carried out in a planned and comprehensive way. The AASF document can be downloaded from the documents section on this page.
