Mammoth plans to build a staggering 1,850 houses south of Sinfin have finally been submitted!
hey would be the remaining houses which make up the proposed Infinity Garden Village, first given government backing in January 2017 and first discussed in 2012.
An application submitted by Hallam Land Management Limited says that the firm, which is part of the Henry Boot Group, has been working on plans for the South of Derby area for 15 years.
Hallam Land Management’s plans have been submitted to both Derby City and Council and South Derbyshire District Council.
The scheme would border Sinfin and Stenson Fields, running the length of Wragley Way, Stenson Road, Arleston Lane and Deep Dale Lane would all run through the site.
On top of the 1,850 houses, the application also includes a large primary school, a “local centre” with a community hall, shops and space for health services, a pub, drive-through restaurant and a petrol station.
The application is so large it has cost £150,000 to submit.
In line with the garden village concept, the scheme would include large amounts of green space, with a huge community park the length of the site, between the homes and the A50.
Meanwhile, the site would also include community orchards, wild flower areas and allotments and several children’s play areas interspersed throughout the development.
Numerous “village greens” would also be built.
Residents would pay a maintenance charge for up-keep of the green spaces – it is not known how much this would be.
It is thought that solar panels and other forms of renewable energy would be integrated throughout the scheme.
As part of the application, changes would be made to the junction of Arleston Lane and Wragley Way to cater for the increase in traffic.
A major new roundabout would also be built at the junction with Stenson Road and Wragley Way.
This Stenson Road “gateway” is to include modern “high-density housing” in higher rise buildings.
The extension would cover 290 acres – connecting the area occupied by Rolls-Royce all the way to the A50 – when complete and is forecast to create 5,000 jobs.
