2.    The outline housing scheme of 285 units achieves the outcomes of the original site development brief/masterplan, and also supports the council to meet a number of housing delivery and planning objectives as set out within the council’s Housing Strategy and the adopted Local Plan, the Chesterfield Borough Local Plan 2018-2035.
