Chetwynd Barracks:
a vibrant new neighbourhood

Initial masterplans for the redevelopment of the Chetwynd Barracks site in Chilwell are being unveiled at a series of public exhibitions by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), part of the Ministry of Defence (MOD).

To support the site’s allocation in Broxtowe Borough Council’s Local Plan, DIO has prepared a range of material to demonstrate how the plan for the site can be delivered and accommodate the number of properties proposed.

This public exhibition sets out the DIO’s long-term vision for the future use of the site and we would welcome your views on the proposals. Although at this stage no planning application has been prepared, we would anticipate that an application might be developed in 2019 following the adoption of Broxtowe Borough Council’s Local Plan.

The DIO is committed to promoting the 75-hectare site for redevelopment to create a vibrant new neighbourhood that provides a sustainable mix of housing, retail, employment and leisure opportunities for the local community.

The Chetwynd Barracks site could, subject to planning, include 1,500 homes that would be well suited for families and could accommodate both homeowners and renters in a variety of types of accommodation.

The disposal process for the site will commence in 2021. The first phase of development on the site may begin prior to the scheduled closure of the current military site. The complete redevelopment of the site is scheduled to take place over 15 years.

The site is sustainably located, and is already well-served by existing road, rail, tram, bus, cycling and footpath networks. There is also the opportunity to connect the existing settlements at Chilwell and Toton with new walking, cycling and bus routes through the site. New access points will be opened up to knit the development and its amenities into the wider area, as well as giving better access to existing facilities like the tram stops to the north.

Existing features such as Hobgoblin Wood and areas of parkland would be retained. New green spaces would be created through a series of corridors to improve the ecology of the site and the surrounding area and the National Shell Filling Factory memorial, its parkland setting and Memorial Garden would be preserved. These new connections across local green spaces and woodlands would help to improve wildlife habitats and biodiversity in the wider area.
