OPPORTUNITIES for suppliers and sub-contractors in the construction industry will be made available at a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event in Chesterfield.

Wilmott Dixon is the appointed contractor of Chevin Housing Association for the 55 unit extra care residential scheme at Foolow Court in Chesterfield.

Wilmott Dixon will hold the event at the Town Hall on Wednesday, September 26, between 8am and 12pm.

The Chevin Housing Association development is the first of three new extra care homes for elderly people to be built across Derbyshire, which will create 197 new homes.

Coun John Burrows, leader of Chesterfield Council, said: “We’ve worked with a number of developers on these ‘Meet the Buyer’ events. They are a great opportunity for local companies and sub-contractors to get their foot in the door for up and coming work.”
