We are looking to shape the future of our District and commissioned a community-led district wide regeneration.
Led by consultants Bauman Lyons Architects, the work primarily focused on the four towns, but also included the wider settlements and areas of interest such as Creswell Crags. It will help identify the strengths and build upon them, but also look at areas that need improving.
We have now produced four frameworks for our main towns which include surrounding villages and hamlets:
- Bolsover (7.04MB) and surrounding villages and hamlets including Bramley Vale, Doe Lea, Scarcliffe, Shuttlewood, Stanfree, Palterton and Glapwell.
- Clowne (8.36MB) and surrounding villages and hamlets including Barlborough, Creswell, Whitwell and Hodthorpe.
- Shirebrook (8.8MB) and surrounding villages and hamlets including Pleasley, Pleasley Vale, Langwith-Whaley Thorns and New Houghton.
- South Normanton (6.79MB) and surrounding villages and hamlets including Pinxton, Blackwell, Hilcote, Newton, Tibshelf and Westhouses.
A £10million project to breathe new life into New Bolsover Model Village got the go-ahead after the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) agreed to grant £1.9million towards the project.
The project will carry out essential repairs and restore original architectural features (660kb) on the 194 dwellings that make-up the Model Village. In addition all 138 Council-owned properties will receive internal thermal insulation.
The three-year project started in June 2016 and offered a number of training and work experience opportunities for local people. Running alongside the building work will also be an exciting programme of activities designed to engage the community, creating a better understanding of the local heritage and evoking a se nse of pride in the local area.
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.
