Former Derbyshire manufacturing site could be demolished to make way for flats

Plans to demolish a former kitchen and bathroom manufacturing site in Derbyshire and build flats in its place look set to be decided in the next few weeks.

The proposals, which have been lodged with Amber Valley Borough Council, involve pulling down the former premises of The Kitchen and Bathroom Company, on the corner of Mansfield Road and Salcombe Road, in Alfreton.

If given the go-ahead, an industrial building, storage building and showroom, would all be flattened to make way for 24, two-bedroom apartments.

Previously, permissions have been granted to convert the existing buildings into 10 apartments.

However, the new plans propose a pair of brand new three-storey buildings, each containing 12 flats. Each flat would be served by one parking space.

In planning documents submitted by E Austin Planning and Building Services, on behalf of the applicant GTS Maintenance Services, it said: “The site is located in a highly sustainable location and represents the redevelopment of a brownfield site.

“It is located adjacent to the railway station and to employment opportunities on the neighbouring industrial estates.

“Mansfield Road is also a main bus route and the town centre is within reasonable cycling distance.

“Given that the apartments are proposed to be two-bed and in a highly sustainable location, it is submitted that further parking would not be necessary as the site will be attractive to commuters using the train and buses.

“Design-wise, the corner plot lends itself to buildings of a height of three stories and a mass that reflects the prominent position, subject to the design and materials being of an appropriate high standard.”
