The Elm Tree, Staveley – our views on the planning application

We are asked to to comment by Chesterfield Borough Council on planning applications involving listed buildings and where building alterations may impact on conservation areas.

We’ve recently commented on plans to convert the Elm Tree public house, High Street, Staveley into domestic dwellings and to build houses on some of the surrounding land.

Our comments can be downloaded via the link below. They also include some historical background to the area.

How things used to be. The Elm Tree, High Street, Staveley is to the left in this Edwardian postcard. The building to the immediate left was replaced some years ago. Note the tree outside the public house – which presumably gave its name to the pub. (Collection the late Fred Wood).
