Persimmon Homes

We secure land near Matlock

20 July 2021

Nottingham has successfully finalised a land deal for 100 new homes near Matlock.

We will transform an 8.1-acre site in Darley Dale, which will incorporate 20 affordable properties.

The Whitworth Dale development has been sympathetically designed to reflect its picturesque surroundings with the homes featuring many architectural finishes traditionally associated with the local area.

Neil Follows, managing director for Nottingham, said: “Darley Dale is a truly wonderful location, so it feels a privilege to be building new homes on the edge of the beautiful Peak District and less than a mile from Matlock.

“The Whitworth Dale development will feature a collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes as well as a cluster of bungalows.

“All of the homes will emulate a cottage style exterior to help blend into their surroundings. These include faux chimneys, stone sills and slate tiles as well as architectural stonework features such as quoining and corbelling.”

Infrastructure work is expected to begin late summer and the team is working towards releasing the first homes for sale in early 2022.  

“We are expecting there to be a lot of interest for this development and would encourage customers to register their interest by visiting the Persimmon Homes website,” added Neil.

“As part of our ongoing strategic development across Derbyshire, we are continually looking to expand our construction workforce and explore new land opportunities.”
