Housing-led regeneration at Castleward Urban Village (CUV) is a priority project in Derby’s City Centre Masterplan 2030 and critical to achieving the housing targets in the Derby City Local Plan. At least 512 new dwellings are proposed within the Order Land.
The Local Plan specifically envisages the use of compulsory purchase powers to deliver the wider CUV, if necessary.
Early phases of development at CUV were completed without the requirement for us to exercise our compulsory purchase order (CPO) powers.
Our preferred option is the acquisition of property interests by agreement.
The use of CPO powers will be used as a last resort to secure the assembly of land as required. We have, and will continue to, put considerable effort into engaging with all known owners of land or interests that will be directly affected by the CPO.
A draft Statement of Reasons (dSoR) has been prepared in connection with the proposed CPO.
The dSoR sets out our justification for the use of the CPO powers in order to assemble the land required for the proposed residential development.
