This Safer Neighbourhood area covers Holmewood, Grassmoor, Calow and Arkwright. It belongs to the North East Local Policing Unit.

Holmewood is an adjacent but distinct settlement situated close to Junction 29 of the M1 motorway. The proximity to the motorway has led to substantial industrial and distribution development on industrial estates adjacent to Holmewood.

Grassmoor is a small village, approximately three miles to the south of Chesterfield, while Calow and Arkwright (often referred to as Arkwright Town despite its non-town status) are also small villages in the vacinity.
