Plans in for £100m Derby Friar Gate scheme

Wavensmere Homes and Clowes Developments have submitted plans to redevelop Derby’s historic Friar Gate Goods Yard.

Two derelict landmark Grade II listed buildings will be restored and refitted to create 276 new homes and over 110,000 sq ft of commercial space.

Friar Gate Goods Yard has been in the ownership of the Clowes family for over 40 years, with a number of options for redevelopment proposed but not progressed, due to heritage constraints and commercial viability.

Wavensmere Homes and Clowes developments have worked with Glancy Nicholls Architects and Pegasus Group to draw up the latest plan for the 150-year-old buildings and wider 11.5-acre site.

​James Dickens, managing director of Wavensmere Homes, said: “This is the most comprehensive planning application we have ever submitted.

“We have fully 3D-modelled the entirety of the 19th Century Bonded Warehouse and Engine House, which has enabled us to present how the buildings could be carefully brought back to life.

“The context of the new homes and several acres of new Public Open Space are also fully illustrated.

“The opportunity to work collaboratively to reanimate this landmark city centre site is an honour and the plans showcase our vision, fine attention to detail, and bold investment into this nationally important regeneration project.

The Goods Yard redevelopment proposals promote sustainable development through the use of low carbon materials, modern methods of construction, and renewable energy generation.
