Planning to move to Derbyshire from the South East. Have been around Alvaston, Normanton, Alfreton to view a few properties, but been let down by either remoteness from local amenities or a cluster of ex-local authority/council estates.

Got a few appointments booked for Heanor which at least on the Google maps street view seems like a leafy and airy place. I could see a lot of private properties and the local town centre seems quite tidy. Any local experience, views, info on good and bad areas would be appreciated. Thanks!

Heanor is better than the other areas you've mentioned, but I wouldn't say it's particularly leafy and airy.!It's quite a run down town now in places. It's an ex-mining town like many others round there. A few boarded up shops etc. But, there's a lovely country park nearby (Shipley Park) and plenty of amenities nearby. There are some lovely big houses on the road out to ilkeston and probably good value for money. Personally I would avoid any areas leading towards Langley Mill. These are just my opinions of course! Good luck.
