  • Conversion of the upper storeys of the existing buildings at 2, 4 and 6, Henry Street, and 8 Railway Street in Glossop from office to residential accommodation and a new side extension. 
  • Change of use of agricultural building to a dwelling house at Castle Edge Farm, Castle Edge Road, New Mills

Six new apartments planned in Whaley Bridge 

New plans have been submitted for a historic building in the centre of Whaley Bridge. 

The Jodrell Arms, a listed building, was formerly a bar and hotel but has been closed for many years. 

Now an application has been submitted to High Peak Brough Council that would retain the bar on the ground floor with residential accommodation provided above. 

The proposals are to create six apartments on the first and second floor of the building these would comprise of two one-bedroomed, three two-bedroomed and one three-bedroomed property. 

New home plans rejected 

Plans for a detached home to be built on land adjacent to 70 Surrey Street, in Glossop have been refused by High Peak Borough Council. 

The negative overbearing impact the development would have on the neighbouring property that would also lead to a loss of sunlight was one of the reasons given. 

Planners also determined that the proximity of principal windows to site boundaries and the lack of useable private amenity space would mean the development failed to provide an adequate standard of amenity for future occupiers of the new property. 

The third reason for refusal was the failure of the design and visual appearance of the proposed new home to respect the existing character and appearance of the immediate and wider street scene. 

The plans are available to view on the council’s website www.highpeak.gov.uk
