3 Jun 2014

Castleward is a 12.1 hectare brownfield regeneration site in Derby currently undergoing redevelopment to create a new community of sustainable homes and businesses. This £100 million project is located between Derby Midland Station and the city centre. The development is a joint venture between Derby City Council and a private partner, Compendium Living, a company jointly owned by housing developer Lovell Partnerships and social housing provider The Riverside Group.

The project spans five phases over 15-20 years. Work on phase one started in November 2012 and includes 163 homes, 16,500sq ft of commercial space, a boulevard and a new urban park over five acres of land

  • Plan in the long-term to create around 800 new homes and 34,500 square feet of commercial space
  • The site utilises the existing street hierarchy, scale and massing
  • The development enhances links to surrounding green space and providing a strong connection between the city centre and public transport connections.
