Castleward redevelopment in Derby gets BREEAM rating of Good

Castleward is a 12.1 hectare brownfield regeneration site that underwent redevelopment to create a new community of sustainable homes and businesses.


Derby City Council is the local authority for Derby. It’s a unitary authority with city status in the East Midlands region of England.


The development is a joint venture between Derby City Council and a private partner, Compendium Living, a company jointly owned by housing developer Lovell Partnerships and social housing provider The Riverside Group.


  • The project spans five phases over 15-20 years. Work on phase one started in November 2012 and included 163 homes, 16,500sq ft of commercial space, a boulevard and a new urban park over five acres of land
  • The long-term plan is to create around 800 new homes and 34,500 square feet of commercial space


  • The site utilises the existing street hierarchy, scale and massing
  • The development enhances links to surrounding green space and providing a strong connection between the city centre and public transport connections
