Civic Centre £1/2 million Regeneration Plan Agreed

Dronfield Town Council agreed to support proposals put forward by the Project Steering group (DTC and NE Derbyshire District Council) to renew the public realm aspects of the Civic Centre area.

The final design includes a new town square, event spaces, improved pedestrian links, crossings, new street furniture including benches and bins. Enhanced landscaping will see resurfaced Tarmac areas, re-lined parking bays, new trees and planters.

Coun Alex Dale, a member of the steering group, commented: "We are delighted to take advantage of this unique opportunity offered by the Government's levelling up fund to transform our Civic Centre. The project will provide a high quality public space for Dronfield Residents to enjoy and also encourage and support business investment and help deliver long-term economic growth."

The project is funded by the public realm element of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and is the first phase in a potential three-phase redevelopment, which may include the retail units that are privately owned if plans come forward from the owner.

The programme deadline for completion of this initial phase is 31st March 2025, and follows a comprehensive consultation in May/June 2021.
