Carver Fields under threat?

It’s our understanding that a decision has been taken to sell the Carver fields on Hagg Lane.

These fields have provided a healthy recreational facility for everyone for many years. If this proves to be the case, and the fields become a building site, this would be a significant loss to the community and to our heritage.

We’ll let you know if we hear more on this.

273, 274 and 275 Crosspool to Derbyshire bus services under threat

Bus services from Crosspool to Castleton and Bakewell could be drastically reduced from October 2017.

Derbyshire County Council is considering several options in order to save money, with one of them being to withdraw all county council funding for subsidised buses from October 2017. This means that unless they can be run commercially they will stop.

The Derbyshire County Council-supported services that run through Crosspool are:

Crosspool petrol station: to be demolished and replaced with a retail development?

An application to demolish Crosspool’s Jet petrol station and replace it with a retail development has been recommended for conditional approval by planning officers.

You can read the report (PDF, 2MB) on the council website. The relevant section is on page 208 of the PDF document, which is labelled page 228..

The report states: “The principle of the development is acceptable because small retail stores are acceptable in housing areas and the applicant has demonstrated that there would be no harm to the existing neighbourhood centre and that there are no better alternative sites.”

The committee is a public meeting so you can attend and make representations to the committee if you so wish. The meeting starts at 2pm and if you do want to speak you should arrive before 2pm and let the committee clerk know of your intention.
