Plans for former chapel to be demolished

The former Zion Methodist Chapel on Simmondley Lane.

Plans have been put forward to demolish the former Zion Methodist Chapel in Simmondley. 

The application states the buildings are in a poor state of repair and have not been occupied for years due to maintenance and heating costs. 

The site has also been subject to multiple instances of vandalism and unauthorised access. 

Previous plans to demolish the chapel building, school building and toilet block were approved back in 2013 but the permission has now lapsed. 

The plans which include details of how the work would be carried out are available to view on the council’s website www.highpeak.gov.uk
