Chesterfield Waterside offers a rare and exciting opportunity for investors and is an integral part of the £1 billion of development happening in the Borough over the next 10 years.
Ranked at 47 in the Top 100 list of the UK's largest regeneration projects, Waterside is already attracting attention from national commercial property agents and inward investors/employers looking to establish new, strategically attractive commercial locations.
With leading universities (Sheffield and Derby) on its doorstep as well as a University of Derby campus within Chesterfield, Chesterfield Waterside is excellently positioned to attract a highly skilled workforce across the board, including senior leaders.
Sheffield itself is ranked fourth in the world for engineering and has cemented that reputation with the announcement of Factory 2050, the £43million centre of excellence for advanced manufacturing at Sheffield Business Park.
The state-of-the-art development will be built by the University of Sheffield, consolidating the success of their investment in the original Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre on the Advanced Manufacturing Park at Catcliff.
Buildings at Chesterfield Waterside will be of high quality design incorporating offices, a multi-storey car park, hotel and an array of shops, bars and restaurants for the waterside community and visitors. The development is supported by Chesterfield's own dedicated marketing campaign: Destination Chesterfield.
Employers may have the benefit of better motivated and more productive work-force and will find recruiting new staff easier, thanks to its easy-to-reach location and the modern, waterside work environment offering space to enjoy along canal-side paths and restored parkland.
The variety and affordability of housing in Chesterfield has already attracted a number of new investors, including Debenhams and TK Maxx in the town centre and Ready Egg, Squadron Medical and Andrew Page Limited at its 200-acre commercial park on the M1, Markham Vale.
Chesterfield has made national headlines with the announcement of a £400m tourism development which will create the world class Peak Resorts complex on its doorstep, bringing together leading hospitality, university, sport and medical expertise and creating more than 1,000 permanent jobs.
As part of the Sheffield City Region, encompassing more than 1.8 million people and approximately 700,000 jobs, Chesterfield has the infrastructure, people skills and vision to support growth. The scope of the City Region's employment offer has led to the development of a skilled and experienced workforce, supplemented annually by the graduates of the Sheffield universities and higher education institutions.
Centrally located in the UK, Chesterfield is only a few minutes from Junctions 29 and 29a of the M1, within one hour's drive of four major airports and within just 1 hour 50 minutes by rail from London. With over 7 million people within a one-hour radius, Chesterfield is a really cost effective place to locate your business.
