The plans state: "The application scheme provides a real opportunity to enhance the site, provide much needed assisted housing and improve the appearance of the site. The site is located in the centre of a residential and commercial area where there are local amenities, good access roads and transport links. This lends the site to a residential development however there is no allocation of the site from a planning point of view.

"The site is located within the Bramton area of Chesterfield and sits behind the Chatsworth Road.

"There are good public transport links and it is close to several amenities and public open spaces."
