Have your say on Springs development.
The Government has awarded Buxton an “in principle” £6.6 million of Future High Street funding, which combined with High Peak Borough Council’s own resources, could be used to diversify lower Buxton around the Springs – to help create jobs, support business growth and help create new footfall so that shops remain or new ones are attracted to the town.
The project includes the introduction of a multi-storey car park behind the Springs and re-use of the car parking for new housing, leisure and community facilities. The grant is for elements of the project that would not be fundable on a commercial basis. However the award of £6.6 million is £3 million less than the original bid, so they are looking to reduce or eliminate some of the elements and have until February 26 2021 to make the necessary changes.
They are therefore looking for as many views as possible and would be grateful if you can complete the online survey www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/6V6PHBT
The deadline is 12 noon on Monday 15 February.
