Informal planning comments are as follows :
'Potential Uses
The Chesterfield Local Plan consists of the Local Plan Core Strategy (2013)1 and saved allocations and policies from the 2006 Replacement Chesterfield Borough Local Plan.
The site is allocated as an existing business and employment area, and is subject to Local Plan Policy CS13. Under this policy, planning applications for the following use classes would be acceptable in principle:
B1(a) office development
B1 (b&c) light industrial
B2 Industrial
B8 warehousing and distribution if they would not have an unacceptable adverse impact as a result of traffic movements

Other commercial uses (such as timber or builder's merchants) which generate employment and would be inappropriate in a town or district centre as a result of scale and servicing needs

Planning applications for other uses will be considered on their merits but will need to provide evidence that the site is not viable or deliverable for the uses listed above.
Retail uses would also be subject to a sequential assessment. For assessment purposes the site is considered 'Edge of Centre' in relation to Whittington Moor District Centre.
Planning Obligations/Community Infrastructure Levy
Chesterfield Borough Council operates a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)2. This site is in the medium charging zone for residential development and subject to a Levy of 50 per square metre of gross internal floorspace. Commercial retail schemes (use class A1) will be subject to a CIL charge of 80 per square metre gross internal floorspace. Exemptions exist for specific scenarios.
Developments costing over 1m will be expected to make provision for public art on site to a value of up to 1% of the development cost under the council's 'Percent for Art Policy' (policy CS18).
Residential development proposals for 15 or more dwellings will be expected to make provision for up to 30% of units on site to be affordable (subject to consideration of viability).
