Scheme up for national award

Have your say

A REGENERATION scheme in Derbyshire has triumphed in a prestigious national awards scheme.

Phase one of the £30 million Clay Cross New Bridge Street redevelopment project – which saw derelict colliery land turned into retail and public space and a doctor’s surgery – shone at the Royal Instituete of Chartered Surveyors’ Awards 2012 regional heat.

The development includes a Tesco eco store, car parking, new bus station and link road and was completed last January.

North East Derbyshire District Council and GMI Construction led the transformation over two decades.

More than £9m of funding has come from Government bodies.

The scheme has now been entered into the national awards and the winners will be announced later on in the year.
