The empty Chesterfield store will reopen as a convenience store


Developers have received planning permission to turn the former co-op, on Chesterfield Road, Staveley, into a one stop shop.

The two-storey building includes a commercial space on the ground floor and an apartment above.

The retail unit is believed to have been empty for four years since the co-op closed the store.

Work is about to begin to transform this former empty Chesterfield Co-op store into a new convenience store. Picture: Google Maps.

Planning documents indicate that the adjoining retail unit is currently a hot takeout.

“According to images available on Google Maps, the application site was occupied by a Co-Op Store until approximately 2018, after which time the unit appears to be vacant,” the officer’s report adds.

The new store will have parking at the front of the unit with a series of bollards separating the front of the store from parked cars.

A new delivery entrance will be created at the rear of the store with a ramp and handrails to assist in the delivery of stock.

Plans also include blocking off a side entrance to the property and creating a new air conditioning installation at the rear of the unit.

No details are available on what will happen to the upper floor of the unit or when the shop will open.

There is also no indication in the plans of what opening hours might be.
