The development site is the former Elm Tree public house and associated land, located on the High Street in centre of the busy north east Derbyshire town of Staveley. The site is ideally situated close to the numerous local shops, restaurants and pubs in the town, the Healthy Living Leisure Centre and Morrisons supermarket. At the 2011 census Staveley parish had a population of 18,247. The town is located approximately 5 miles north east of Chesterfield, 11 miles west of Worksop and 12 miles south east of Sheffield. Staveley has excellent communication links being just 2 miles from junction 29a of the M1 motorway.


The development site currently comprises the former Elm Tree public house and the car park to the side and rear of the site. The Elm Tree is a traditionally built two-storey detached property of brick elevations beneath a pitched tiled roof, surrounded by a car park to the side and rear, laid to tarmac.

Planning permission was approved by Chesterfield Borough Council on 7th December 2017 for the conversion of the public house to flats, including the erection of a two storey rear extension and erection of two detached buildings to form 23 self-contained flats.

The application reference number is  CHE 16/00835/FUL and development should take place within three years from the date of grant.

The internal redesign of the public house has been formulated to provide 7x flats with 1x one-bed, 3x two-beds and 3x three-beds. The new build property will provide 16x flats in total comprising 10x one-beds, 5x two beds and 1x three-beds. This offers a range of bedroom numbers to meet local requirements in this area.

The extension and new buildings reflect the character of the existing public house and local area to ensure that it enhances the character of the area without having a detrimental impact on existing properties and future occupiers.

The development will enhance the surrounding area through the removal of the existing smoking shelter and the construction of a two storey rear extension, along with a new building to the side and rear of the site. The approved layout utilises the existing access to the site whilst provision is made for a bin store, a bike store for up to 22 bicycles along with landscaping creating an internal court yard as the main amenity space for the residence

It should be noted the Section 106 Agreement stipulated a TRO fee of £4,000. This has been paid by our client.

The payment of an additional CIL payment of £17,500 is required prior to the commencement of the development.
