Chesterfield Borough Council invests £7.1m into modernisation programme

Chesterfield Borough Council is investing £7.1m into delivering new and modernised council homes in Staveley to meet the needs of local people.

Homes in the area will undergo extensive internal and external improvements as part of the modernisation programme.

New doors and windows will be installed to increase security and additional environmental benefits as well as creating a fresh and modernised look.

Plans for Mallard Court and Leander Court in Staveley will deliver more modern and attractive housing for older people with a newly renovated kitchen and lounge area.

Communal areas and outdoor spaces will also be restored, making the spaces brighter and more open for residents to socialise.

Four new town houses will also be built as part of Aston Court, to increase the supply of council homes in the area.

Councillor Chris Ludlow, cabinet member for housing, said:

“The council is committed to improving the quality of life for local people and we can help achieve this by investing in our housing stock to ensure that we maintain a supply of affordable, modern and attractive homes for every stage of life.

“A key part of our housing strategy is to make sure that our homes are of excellent quality and create a modern and desirable environment. This project will help us ensure that homes in Staveley meet the expectations of our residents with regard to accessibility, affordable warmth and security.

“We are really looking forward to seeing the modernisation works progress at Staveley as we aim to improve the local housing offer in the area and create an attractive place for people to choose to live, regardless of their age or housing needs.”
