Bungalows plan for former Killamarsh railway station site

PLANS have been submitted to North East Derbyshire Council for the development of the former Killamarsh railway station site.

The proposals put forward by the team at CODA Planning are for 13 two and three bed bungalows on the site of the dismantled and archived station building, overlooking the Trans Pennine Trail, which follows the route of the old railway line. There is a previous approval for 14 detached dwellings.

The properties have been designed by the architects from award winning Sheffield multi disciplinary practice CODA Studios in association with Ackroyd & Abbott.

“This is an exciting development for a site that remained derelict for a decade now,” said CODA Planning director Rob Crolla.

“These will not be your “run of the mill” bungalows - all will be bricked built, with pitched roofs and Velux windows, with a design capitalising on the popularity of open plan living and space.

“It is the perfect development for Killamarsh, which is ideally situated in the Derbyshire/Yorkshire border and within easy access of the M1.

“We are confident that the proposals should receive a positive response from the community’s council representatives and that the development should then be able to move quickly to site.”
