Hilton Redevelopment

Location: Hilton, Derbyshire
Client: St Modwen
Sector: Shape
Scope: Communities Regeneration

This project involved the redevelopment of a brownfield site to provide up to 485 new homes, 7 hectares of employment development, a mixed-use local centre, primary school and significant areas of public parkland incorporating enhanced woodland and extensive habitat creation. The site was originally erected as a temporary WW2 storage site so many of its buildings were well beyond their intended life span. A key aspect of the scheme’s masterplan was to facilitate a phased closure of the storage units, ensuring that the retention of jobs and rental income was co-ordinated with the provision of new development. Define provided the urban design inputs into the preparation of the Masterplan, outline planning application and phase one design guide.
