Plans have been put forward to transform part of the central courtyard at Peak Village, which is owned by the Devonshire Group.

The proposals at the Rowsley shopping complex involve replacing an existing structure with a high quality and extended conservatory to provide an improved and relaxing atmosphere for shoppers and diners.

A new outdoor wrap-around canopy would be created to provide shade for alfresco dining in the warmer months.

The Devonshire Group bought Peak Village in 2021, with the aim of rejuvenating the centre.

Since then, it has made significant improvements to the outdoor environment, landscaping public areas and refitting store units.

The latest proposals form part of the Devonshire Group’s long-term vision for Peak Village.

This includes plans to rebrand Peak Village, alongside works to improve external signage and enhance the entrance atriums in the coming months.

Katayune Jacquin, centre manager at Peak Village, said: “We’re excited to reach this latest milestone, as part of our long-term aims to realise the potential of Peak Village as an important contributor to the fabric of the local economy.”

Situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park, Peak Village is home to nearly 20 retail and leisure businesses and employs between 80 and 100 people.

As part of the long-term investment by the Devonshire Group, Peak Village continues to evolve its retail and leisure mix to drive footfall and attract local independent, luxury and national brands to the centre.

Katayune said: “It’s hugely important to us that we support the growth of local businesses who call Peak Village their home, with high quality amenities that will help to attract footfall and loyal custom.

“The proposals will deliver an eye-catching, fresh and vibrant space for visitors to enjoy for many years to come and will complement our fantastic calendar of events such as markets, live music and al fresco dining, so we really look forward to seeing the project take shape.”
