Tue 10th January 2023

A number of planning applications for properties in Alfreton, Somercotes and the surrounding areas were granted permission towards the end of 2022.

A new document published by Amber Valley Borough Council ahead of a meeting of its planning board details all applications decided under delegated powers between October and December.

Approved applications include one for a new house of multiple occupancy in Alfreton town centre, leisure facilities for staff working at a factory in Somercotes and new electric car charging points at a petrol station in Swanwick.

Just one application in the Alfreton area was refused planning permission, according to the document. You can view the document in full here.
