Noticeboard plans

Plans have been submitted for a community noticeboard to be installed on The Promenade in New Mills. 

If approved, the wooden noticeboard will have two bays for displaying community group information on activities and events, commercial advertisements will not be allowed. 

The proposal has been put forward as a result of the New Mills Community Conversation in March 2020, and the 'Bounce Forward' consultation when a way to promote community events for those with limited internet access was identified. 

Plans approved 

Plans that have been given the go-ahead and approved by High Peak Borough Council include: 

  • First floor extension over existing utility/garage structure, a front lean-to extension from existing porch and a detached garage to side at Wingate, Eccles Road, Chapel-en-le-Frith. 
  • Single storey rear and side wrap around extension at 19 Elmfield, Chapel-en-le-Frith 
  • Demolition of existing side extension and construction of new single storey side extension at 47 Buxton Road, Chinley 
  • Construction of stable block at Hilltop Farm, Hilltop Road, Glossop 
  • Agricultural building to store fodder and implements at Ringstones Farm, Yeardsley Lane, Furness Vale

  • Front Porch Extension at 22 Horderns Park Road, Chapel-en-le-Frith 
  • Permission to subdivide Bowden Hall, Bowden Lane, Bowden, Chapel-en-le-Frith, to create two houses 

Changes to properties in Glossop refused 

Applications to extend two properties Glossop Brook View in Glossop by building living accommodation on balconies have been turned down by planners. 

Concerns that the proposal would lead to overlooking and loss of privacy at neighbouring properties was one of the grounds for refusal. 

Planners also determined that the siting, elevated height, and design would harm the character and appearance of the building itself and the Conservation Area in which it is set.  

The homeowners at both number 12 and number 11 had wanted to extend their living accommodation by incorporating part of the balconies at the properties.
