Work on the first phase of the transformation of historic buildings in Glossop is almost complete.

High Peak Borough Council is leading the Glossop Halls regeneration project, which involves bringing the Town Hall, Market Hall and Municipal Buildings up to modern standards.

The scheme aims to create new spaces for community use, entrepreneurs and micro-businesses, alongside the introduction of energy saving technologies and fibre broadband.

The £7 million scheme is being funded by the borough council, including a £2 million grant contribution from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership via its Getting Building Fund.

The first phase of the project, which has included replacing the Market Hall roof and the removal of the floor, as well as internal plaster repairs in the Municipal Buildings, is now drawing to a close and listed buildings consent for the next stages has been submitted.

Alongside this, the council is also progressing with its search for a commercial partner to manage and operate the redeveloped complex once building work is complete.

Council leader, Councillor Anthony Mckeown, said: “This project we’re undertaking will see significant sums invested in regenerating and restoring these essential heritage buildings for the future.

“This next stage of the works will transform the Glossop Halls complex into a modern, vibrant hub for the town.

“It’s a once-in-a-generation chance to deliver the business opportunities and community amenities we need to maximise recovery post-Covid.

“It’s an exciting project to be part of, which reflects our ambitions for Glossop and, as we move into the next phase of the project, I look forward to getting on with making it a reality.”
