Milford Mills Development – September news

At the time of the last update in May quite a detailed picture of the plans of Chevin Homes (developers of the listed Dye House buildings at the front of the site by the A6) and Wavensmere (builders of the proposed 67 houses on the rest of the site) for the site was emerging and can be found here. A planning application by Chevin Homes for the proposed indoor cricket club and community facility, (please see link here, and type in the application no. AVA/2022/0371) was submitted about that time and proved highly controversial – 80 objections were raised. The decision of Amber Valley Borough Council is still awaited. Chevin Homes also submitted an application (same link as above, application no AVA/2022/0252) for removal of the all the roof covering of the Dye House and for it to be re-roofed. This was granted and from the picture below it can be seen that the work replacing the roof is well underway.

Dye House roof renovation well under way August 2022

In July Chevin Homes applied for planning permission (see link here, and type in the application no. AVA/2022/0686) to de-construct the A6/Derby Road stone wall to existing footpath level, followed by like-for-like re-building up to 10ft (circa 3m) in height (to tie in with adjacent pitched coping stone to the driveway of the grade 2 listed Canteen building). Consent from Amber Valley Borough Council is still awaited and could take some time, given the listed building status.

Finally in August Wavensmere applied for planning permission to alter the style of houses from the modernist original Clowes application 20 years ago to the more traditional designs shown in the public consultation in March (link here, and type in the application no. AVA/2022/0739).
