MP opens show home in Bolsover

28 March 2023

Our Bolsover development - which will provide much-needed homes for the town - was visited by local MP Mark Fletcher, who officially opened the new show home and sales office.

Castle Walk at Elmton Lane in Bolsover is the first phase of the development of 144 homes on part of this new edge of town development. The mix of properties will include two to four bedroom family homes and benefits from a family-friendly setting with easy access to the local town centre, supermarket, Bolsover Castle and the M1.

Mark Fletcher MP commented: ‘’It was a real pleasure to be at the opening of the new Castle Walk development in Bolsover and to see the fantastic homes on offer.

One of my key campaign pledges in 2019 was to help more local people on the housing ladder, so it’s great to see so many new homes becoming available to my constituents.

I’d like to thank Tom and the Persimmon team for showing me around the show homes and site. I look forward to welcoming new residents to Bolsover in the future”

Commenting on the development, Sales Director Tom Baskett said: “The Castle Walk development is going offer a range of homes for the people of Bolsover. The development has been designed to cater for the local housing need and we hope people are going to be excited by the development which is going to be a really nice place to live.”

Planning permission for the first phase of 19.5 acres development was granted by Bolsover District Council and represents a major investment in this location. The Nottingham team is set to contribute more by way of its S106 agreement, which will include improvements to the local road network, public realm and contributions for primary and secondary education enhancements.
