City Masterplan Unveiled by Derby University


The University of Derby has released a number of visuals which show how it plans to develop its city centre footprint and improve connectivity between its sites.

The City Masterplan focuses on the development of the area around One Friar Gate Square, Ford Street, Bridge Street, Agard Street and Nuns Street with the overall ambition to create two distinct but linked areas in the city comprimising of an Academic Zone and an Enterprise Zone.

Last year, the university announced its vision for a new Derby Business School in Agard Street which would be the base for over 6000 students by 2030. In addition to this, the Academic Zone would have the capability of delivering additional learning space, Union of Students’ facilities, catering, and student residential space, as well as staff and lettable office accommodation.

The Enterprise Zone would aim to deliver a mixed-use development comprising commercial lettable and business start-up/grow-on space, as well as provision for retail, entertainment and student residential space.
