Following refusal by Peak Park for a gypsy/traveller site at the old waterworks building near the golf club, an new application has been submitted. Unedited press statement below.
"Planning permission has recently been submitted to convert the original Hurst Waterworks site in Glossop into high tech offices that could be funded by Derbyshire High Growth fund and European Union Grant.
The new office space to be named ‘Fairway Business Centre’ comes at a time when the community of Glossop welcomes further rentable office space to assist with the expanding demand for new business growth. This has also been recognised by Derbyshire County Council whom have set up a growth fund project to give financial assistance with projects that help create business growth and job security within Derbyshire. A minimum of 12 units will be created with easy in/out agreements for tenants in a managed office space that will provide state of the art facilities for high tech companies, including high speed internet, digital phone system and a managed reception. The development also proposes virtual offices and hot-desks designated areas, (computer use in quiet area) all with a view to supporting start-up and micro businesses.
The proposals have been put together by the site owner Mr Milner. Mr Milner (uk.linkedin.com/pub/paul-milner/44/131/b06/) has delivered similar projects across Manchester using government funds to help small businesses get off the ground. Similar thriving projects in Oldham, Rochdale and Wythenshaw have all been a great success story in helping start-up companies find their feet, gain confidence and grow.
With successful planning permission and the access to funding the re-development of a scruffy redundant site could be underway in early 2015."
