The Derby Telegraph reports that Derby's city centre is seeing a residential revolution with hundreds of new homes being built within the DE1 postcode area.
The newspaper has calculated that nearly 2,400 new properties have either recently been built, are in the process of being built or are likely to be built in the future.
The DE1 postcode, the very heart of our city, is the main focus of activity, with a recent flurry of planning application for residential units - in addition to the many hundreds of properties that are already being built.
And demand for these properties, many of which are 'affordable homes', is high, as DE1 is fast becoming Derby's "des res".
