Step forward for Becketwell
As part of the exciting multi-million-pound plans to regenerate the city’s Becketwell area, Bondholder developer St James Securities has submitted a reserved matters application for detailed planning consent for 259 apartments.
The company hopes to make a start on building work in the spring, subject to approval. It also intends to create offices and commercial space as part of an investment of more than £200m and has partnered with fellow Bondholder Derby City Council to deliver a new 3,500-capacity performance and conference arena on part of the site.
More than 2,000 jobs are expected to be created by the development.
Director Paul Morris declared: “We are looking forward to delivering a quality scheme that will help revitalise a long-neglected area of the city and contribute to improving the vibrancy and attraction of the city centre overall.”
