This site was sold to Miller Homes in January 2020. 

Amber Valley Borough Council granted consent for the Reserved Matters application for 400 new homes, on the 48 acre site known as The Oaks, off Kedleston Road in January 2020.  

Following extensive pre-application discussions, Planning Committee members voted to support the Officer’s recommendation for approval and resolved to grant the application in October 2019.

MAY 2019 - Following the granting of outline planning permission for up to 400 homes in August 2016, Catesby Estates submitted a Reserved Matters Application to Amber Valley Borough Council (Ref: AVA/2019/0573). 
 
MARCH 2019 - The decision made by the Court of Appeal in July 2018 to reinstate outline planning permission for 400 new homes at Kedleston Road in Allestree, has been upheld by the Supreme Court. 

The challenge to the ruling was made by Kedleston Voice, a local action group opposed to development on the site. 

They were refused permission to have their case heard in the Supreme Court as the submission did not raise an arguable point of law.

The Court of Appeal  upheld the Planning Inspectors conclusions on the impact of the development on the setting of Kedleston Hall, which they described as ‘comprehensive and complete’. The Court of Appeals decision was clear that the Inspectors conclusions in relation to this matter were ‘unassailable’

We are now able to bring this development forward and a Reserved Matters Application will be prepared and submitted to Amber Valley District Council.

AUGUST 2018 - Kedleston Voice has been refused permission by the Court of Appeal to take their case to the Supreme Court, challenging the decision to reinstate planning permission for new homes in Allestree.

The judgment made by three Lord & Lady Justices at the Court of Appeal back in July ruled in favour of Catesby Estates.

JULY 2018 - The application to the Court of Appeal has been successful and planning approval for 400 new homes off Kedleston Road, Allestree, Derby has been reinstated.

The previous decision in the High Court stated that the Inspector had adopted an unlawfully narrow approach to the setting of heritage assets. The 3 Lord Justices did not agree with this conclusion and allowed the appeal, confirming that the Planning Inspector’s “approach cannot be faulted, and his conclusions were well within the limits of lawful planning judgment.”

A planning application was submitted to Amber Valley Borough Council for 400 homes on the 48 acre site in Allestree in 2014, which was subsequently refused by Amber Valley District Council.  The proposals were subsequently granted planning permission by the Planning Inspector in August 2016, following a two week public inquiry.
