In 2010, Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust submitted an outline planning application (OPA) for the mixed-use redevelopment of the Derbyshire Royal Infirmary (DRI), a 7 ha site in Derby City Centre. Permission was granted in July 2012 for development comprising a major foodstore, care home and approximately 350 dwellings.
The St Philips team (including JV partners) have prepared a new OPA which reflects a range of significant changes in market circumstances since the original planning permission was granted. These included:-
A revised outline application was submitted in January 2017, following pre-application discussions and a public exhibition, for the site’s redevelopment for up to 500 new houses/flats together with supporting commercial and community uses, and the retention and restoration of some key heritage buildings and structures. The application documents describe and promote a new residential neighbourhood which will substantially contribute to the wider regeneration and economic progress of Derby. The City Council resolved to grant planning permission in September 2017 with s.106 obligations limited to 10% Affordable Housing (20% rented and 80% shared equity), and primary and secondary education contributions.
