On behalf of North East Derbyshire Council, Alliance Leisure and ISG Construction, DPP have secured planning permission for the new Clay Cross Community Hub in Clay Cross, North East Derbyshire and works to deliver the new centre have now commenced on site.
The centre, which has been designed by GT3 Architects, will include leisure facilities, health provision and support services and will replace the existing outdated leisure centre built in the 1970’s. The project is one of ten projects in the £24.1m Clay Cross Town Deal and will represent a significant investment in leisure facilities in the area.
DPP, alongside the project team, liaised closely with the LPA and consultees from an early stage in the project and throughout the determination period to secure consent and reduce the number of pre-commencement conditions. Following approval, DPP also successfully co-ordinated the submission of a S73 minor amendment application to allow for some minor changes to be made to the scheme prior to works commencing on site.
Speaking about the approval, Nicola Crowley, Principal Planner at DPP said:
We have worked with Alliance Leisure and ISG on a number of leisure schemes and are delighted to continue this partnership and secure permission for another new leisure facility which will significantly enhance the leisure offer for residents in North East Derbyshire.
