New Housing Proposed for Bolsover

Rayner Davies Architects have submitted a planning application for 32 new dwellings in the market town of Bolsover in Derbyshire.  Dragonfly Development are behind the project which aims to deliver high quality private sale and affordable housing.  It follows Dragonfly’s recent successful development in South Normanton.

A range of properties are proposed from two bed bungalows to four bed detached houses on the 3.6-acre site.

The site was formally industrial space all of which has been vacant for some time.

Engineering support was provided by DICE and 24/three acted as Design & Project Managers.

Traditional materials are proposed - materials that are in keeping with the surrounding area such as red masonry brickwork, roof tiles and light-coloured surface treatments to create a pleasant environment for residents. Brick detailing has been used to create interest and variety along with cladding to key properties.  A large tree-lined pedestrian boulevard is proposed running through the site.  Front gardens will be bound by low level hedges and railings. 3 units will be allocated as affordable housing in line local planning policy.

Work is expected to start later this year
