Major Chesterfield retail plans now in doubt

Have your say

Plans for a major Chesterfield shopping development are under review by the borough council following changing trends in the retail sector.

The Northern Gateway scheme aims to create a high quality shopping, restaurant and leisure development on land surrounding the Donut roundabout site.

But there have also been store closures since the scheme was announced, internet shopping has exploded and no large food store has been found to anchor the project.
