THE Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Board has approved £2.4 million funding from its Growing Places Fund for the Chesterfield Waterside| development.

This will help unlock delivery of the Chesterfield Waterside development through providing the necessary investment to complete the canal link and improve traffic access to the site.

Funding approved for Chesterfield Waterside development

 Chesterfield Waterside will take a largely vacant edge of town centre waterside site and create a vibrant new environment of buildings and open spaces. This will be home to a thriving new community of businesses and residents and will become a major attraction for visitors.

Plans for the site include: a new canal basin; landmark public spaces; an eco-park; a waterside residential neighbourhood of around 1200 homes; over 30,000 square metre business space; and shops, bars, cafes, galleries and hotels.
