Urban Regeneration

Toton & Chetwynd

The scheduled closure of the historic Chetwynd Barracks in 2026 gives the opportunity to regenerate and reimagine communities on the borders of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

Initial plans include the development of cycle pathways, green spaces, new schools, healthcare facilities and modern communities which offer affordable and carbon neutral homes.

These ambitious plans aim to create jobs, housing and transport links, connecting old and new communities over the next 20 years.

A place that’s on a mission to become the UK’s first carbon-neutral city by 2028, with unprecedented levels of investment in an award-winning, clean and green public transport system, electric vehicles and sustainable energy sources. A vibrant clash of creativity and culture, history and heritage, and world-class sports. A city where you’ll find independent shops, world cuisine and a thriving nightlife buzzing within the curious alleyways, boutique arcades and beautiful architecture. And two world-class universities nurturing innovation and independent minds, while a growing business scene secures their future. A place that’s always moving forward while celebrating its past. The biggest small city in the UK, nestled in the heart of the Midlands.
