Market Square

Market Square

During our public consultation in 2021, 77% of respondents were positive about our proposals to improve the Market Square area. Improvements to the public realm was the most popular of all proposals.


The Market

As an enlarged public open space, the market place will be designed as a flexible environment to support existing uses such as Staveley Town Council’s regular markets but also as a setting that can be used to host a wide range of new events to encourage more people to visit the town centre.

Tiered outdoor seating will be introduced to support outdoor theatre and open-air cinema screenings, and natural play equipment installed to help make the marketplace more attractive to families.

New paving, lighting, street furniture and planting will help create an enhanced atmosphere and visitor experience at any time of day or night whilst new signage will help connect the town centre with Staveley’s other visitor attractions including the Chesterfield Canal and Staveley Hall.


Pavilion building

The new pavilion building sits between the Staveley Miners Welfare building and Staveley High Street. Of modern design but one that is also reflective of Staveley’s heritage, the building will form a striking new focal point in the heart of the town centre. Several uses for the building are currently being considered including as a potential site for Derbyshire County Council’s relocation of Staveley library and also for retail, leisure, and business start-up uses.

Development of the Pavilion building is dependant on planning permission being granted. We expect to seek permission for this development in 2024.

 The Pavilion building will act as a new landmark to draw focus into the town centre


Barnfield Close

Barnfield Close is the row of shops between the market and Morrison’s. We are currently speaking with tenants and landlords to try and provide funding through the Shop Front Improvement Grant Scheme to make visual improvements to this collection of buildings.
