The Avenue Open or Close
The development is the single largest regeneration scheme in the Coalfields Programme and it is an exemplar site, showcasing best practice.The River Rother is now re-routed, and will be part of a 70 hectare Country Park, accessible for all residents. We are working to ensure the Country Park trails and footpaths are more widely connected to The Trans Pennine Trail, Grassmoor Country Park and the Five Pits Trail as well as providing green routes to Clay Cross, Wingerworth and Chesterfield.
We want to see a community facility/visitor centre adjacent to the planned primary school which provides: A cafe, Cycle hires, small meeting room, sports hall, child care/crèche facility, space which provides historical information about the site.
We want to provide public art within the site in all its forms, and we are keen to engage with local residents and organisations to do this over the lifetime of the development which is expected to be about 10 years.The Avenue is also about new homes and employment. The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) engaged a house builder to start work in 2016 on the first phase of the housing which includes 239 homes and a village green. The house builder is very keen to work with the Council, the HCA and other partners to ensure that as part of the construction process opportunities include:
‘Meet the Buyer’ events to support local businesses
Employment and training for local people
We also want to see employment opportunities being developed within the site. 2.8 hectares of land has been allocated for employment use. We are working with partners and the private sector to deliver facilities and business accommodation which supports growth in the creative/digital and tourism/leisure/sport sectors.
