‘The Car Park is the latest regeneration project that is helping to develop the town centre and also to make Chesterfield a thriving borough’, states Councillor Terry Gilby, the council’s cabinet member for economic growth.
The new multi-storey car park at Saltergate in Chesterfield officially opened to the public on Tuesday, 30 July 2019. The prominent building with its perforated cladding panels façade is part of the £19.9 million Northern Gateway project.
Constructed by HUBER car park systems, the 526-spaces multi-storey car park is built according to the VCA system, using a continuous ramp, which ensures less congestion and enables ease of access to generously sized parking spaces. Saltergate currently has six charging points for electronic vehicles and has the capacity for 16, if required. Additionally, it has 32 disabled spaces and 15 parent and child spaces.
The car park is open 24 hours a day, all year round with extensive CCTV coverage to maximise the security of its customers. There are two comfortable lifts, a bright staircase with automatic doors and differently coloured parking levels, as well as automated speed-gates at entrances and exits.
The car park was not only designed to offer stress-free parking to all customers but also to complement and be respectful of its surroundings.
According to Councillor Gilby, “The design for the car park was chosen to blend in well with the surrounding area, including the plans for the new enterprise centre on part of the site of Holywell Cross (Donut) car park. In addition to this, the red colour scheme is also in line with the council’s brand.”
As well as attractive pricing, the Saltergate location ensures that not only shoppers, but commuters and guests staying at the new hotel on Elder Way will profit from its proximity to Chesterfield town centre.
“We are committed to serving and supporting communities by investing in new facilities such as this to make the town a great place to live and visit” says Councillor Terry Gilby.
