Find out more about why we're investing in these historic buildings

In times past the Victoria Hall, Town Hall, Market Hall and Municipal Buildings have been the centre of civic and community life in Glossop.

Time has moved on - our economy and society itself has changed. These buildings, which were so important in the past, are being left behind, are now underused and, in some cases, their fabric is deteriorating.

Previous public consultation, including 'Open Halls' which started in 2012, has told us that local people have a strong desire to see them brought back into use once again. However, we and other public bodies now have no direct use for a number of the buildings and they are increasingly becoming a drain on public finances.

The Council is currently undertaking a £7m restoration project to see these iconic buildings brought back in to use bringing economic and social benefits for local people and the town. This will bring the Town Hall, Market Hall and Municipal Buildings up to modern standards and create jobs and new spaces for community use, entrepreneurs and micro-businesses alongside the installation of energy saving technologies and fibre broadband.
