A proposal to provide affordable housing on the Kingsfield site in Wirksworth. The scheme includes a new public house with improved access to the playing field. It is intended to create vibrant and colourful new housing in Wirksworth giving additional life to the pub and playing fields as a result.
The effect of this will be to make the new pub sit within the playing field and not separated from it by a road. This will change the way it is used and make it a safer more sustainable venture by virtue of improving accessiblity for those using the park.
The design evolved through discussion with local residents and users of the playing field. A key aspect of the scheme involved altering the road access to remove a dangerous junction.
