Richborough Estates promoted a 34 acre site on land to the West of Mickleover (accessed from Swayfield Close and Greenside Court). The site is on the edge of Derby and in the administrative area of South Derbyshire District Council.

A planning application for a sustainable development of 252 homes was submitted on 19 August 2015, and in April 2016 it was approved at committee, subject to the signing of an s106 agreement.

The development proposes a mix of housing styles, and includes a play area and extensive public open space.

Following a successful marketing exercise in 2016, the site has been sold to Bloor Homes Ltd. A reserved matters application was submitted in May 2017.
