This South Derbyshire riverside site for 90 private and affordable homes has been sold on to local housebuilders and has now been fully built out. Situated close to the River Trent, the Willington site is located on an old aluminium smelting works, which Landform were able to buy from the receivers. However, the site had large areas of contaminated land and was partly located within the flood plain of the river Trent and presented challenging technical and planning issues.
Landform were able to secure a change of use for the land after going through comprehensive environmental consultations on how to safely decontaminate the land and developing a comprehensive flood risk solution. We were then able to successfully secure planning consent for a fully detailed housing scheme.
