Dronfield Manor Farm site set to be developed

The former Area Housing Office site in Dronfield is set to be transformed into new homes. NEDDC will bring the Manor Farm site back into use to provide a selection of two, three and four bedroom properties that meet the local areas housing need.

The site, will see the mix of 10 apartments and houses become available for people to move into from spring 2020.

North East Derbyshire District Council’s Leader, Councillor Graham Baxter MBE said, “The site has been derelict and an eyesore for some time, so it was a key site for us to bring back into use. This is an exciting development and the mix of homes to be provided has been influenced by local comments on the previous permission and a direct response to local housing need.”

One of the key aims for the Council is to provide opportunities for local people. Work on site is due to start in first part of this year and the development is expected to create construction and employment opportunities for local people and boost local trade.

Local Councillor for Dronfield, Christine Smith said, “This will be a fantastic development that will see good quality, modern and efficient homes for sale. To maximise the benefits to local companies, one of our key objectives is to make sure we create job opportunities for local people and ensure spend from the development is kept within the area wherever possible. This scheme will meet those objectives."
