Back to News

Outline planning permission was granted on Thursday the 13th February 2020 by Derby Council’s Planning Control Committee for a new scheme that looks to revitalise the Becketwell area of Derby.

It will comprise of 224 apartments in an 11-storey building, adjacent to a further five-storey building with more apartments and other mixed uses, together with offices, and planning permission for a multi-use public square.

The new development will transform an area which has lay derelict since the Duckworth Square shopping centre was demolished in 2003, and will form part of a wider set of regeneration schemes that are happening across the city, most notably the Nightingale Quarter on the site of a former hospital.

Work to start demolishing the old Debenhams began in January of this month, with other buildings in the area set to be demolished over the coming months.
