Buxton redevelopment plans submitted

A planning application has been submitted for a redevelopment of Buxton town centre in Derbyshire to High Peak Borough Council.

The scheme will include a five-storey hotel, a supermarket, a multi-storey car park and four retail units. DLG Architects drew up the plans for clients Zurich Assurance and Sainsbury Supermarkets.

Subject to planning approval, it is anticipated that the scheme could start on site at the end of 2009 with completion by December 2011. 

DLG associate director Neil Swift said: “Due to the cultural heritage of Buxton town centre, it is important that the scheme fits into the fabric of the town. 

“Wherever possible we will use local materials, and the form of many of the proposed buildings take their cue from locally distinctive structures.”
