Catesby Estates is pleased to announce Amber Valley Borough Council has granted consent for the Reserved Matters application for 400 new homes, on a 48 acre site known as The Oaks, off Kedleston Road, Allestree, Derbyshire.

Following extensive pre-application discussions, Planning Committee members voted to support the Officer’s recommendation for approval and resolved to grant the application in October.

David Morris, Planning Director at Catesby Estates said “We have been working on bringing this site forward since 2014, and are pleased the committee decided to vote in favour of our application. Our proposals include 120 affordable homes in an area where there is a recognised shortage of housing, particularly affordable housing.”

“We are in detailed discussions with a housebuilder and hope to announce their appointment in the New Year.”

First residents will be expected to take occupation early 2021.
