Land at Royal Hill Road, Spondon

Proposed residential development

Miller Homes are preparing an outline planning application for residential development at Land at Royal Hill Road, Spondon.

The proposals are for up to 90 dwellings served from an access point from Royal Hill Road. 


The development proposals also include the provision of open space, landscaping, drainage and pedestrian links around the site and onto the wider network of footpaths.


Demand for housing in Derby is high and the City Council need to ensure that new homes are provided to meet the needs of existing and future residents.

There is limited capacity in Derby City to accommodate their housing requirement. Derby City has no undeveloped or unprotected land left available within its administrative boundary. What land is available for development is mostly limited to flats within the city centre.  In order to meet Derby City’s ongoing housing needs and provide much need family housing, greenfield land will need to be developed.


Given the built up nature of Derby and the limited supply of viable brownfield sites it will be necessary for the Council to support the development of greenfield land in sustainable locations adjacent to existing built up areas.


The development of this site is considered to be desirable and highly sustainable site given the site's access to both the facilities and services of Spondon and Derby and the wider countryside.

The development proposal for the site include the following:

  •  The delivery of approximately high-quality new homes


  • The provision of 30% affordable homes, in line with Derby City Council planning policy, helping existing local residents to purchase their first home


  • A sympathetically designed development which positively responds to existing features of the site and respects the character of the surrounding homes


  • A focus on sustainably delivering these homes – options include the installation of electric vehicle charging points, air source heat pumps and photovoltaic (solar) panels


  • New areas of public open space and green infrastructure, helping to deliver a 10% net gain in biodiversity


  • Pedestrian links around the site and onto the wider network of footpaths providing direct links into both the countryside and the village centre
