Historically, the land at Staker Lane on the edge of Derby had been promoted by the landowner. Through a competitive process, the landowners chose L&Q Estates to provide the technical and professional expertise to take the site forward and to promote the land through the forthcoming Local Plan reviews in both South Derbyshire and Derby City.
Early engagement with the Local Planning Authorities has raised the profile of the site in terms of its availability, suitability and deliverability as a sustainable location to deliver approximately 450 new homes across the two administrative areas.
The site is well-connected to the surrounding urban area of Mickleover, which lies approximately 3km west of Derby city centre, and benefits from easy access to public transport and strategic highway links within close proximity to the site. The aerial photograph highlights the location of the site within the context of the local area.
The land at Staker Lane straddles the boundary of two Local Authorities, South Derbyshire District Council (SDDC) and Derby City Council (DCC), and therefore is well-placed to meet the future needs of both Authorities.
