Work set to start at Sylvan car, coach and lorry park

Work to resurface and improve the layout of Buxton's Sylvan car park and the coach and lorry park is set to start early next month.

The scheme will be carried out in two phases to minimise disruption with work taking place at the 68-space pay and display car park first before moving onto the coach and lorry park.

Contractors, Alliance Contracting Solutions, will start on the pay and display site on Monday 5 February and the work is expected to take three weeks after which it will re-open.

The contractors will then move onto the coach and lorry park which will be closed for two weeks.

Councillor Tony Kemp, Executive Councillor for Tourism and Regeneration, said: "Whilst there is never a good time to close parking facilities we've chosen February, traditionally a quieter time of the year, and phased the works to minimise inconvenience for users of these facilities.

"Alternative car and coach parking is available at locations throughout the town and we'll be putting up signage to direct drivers to the other sites. Unfortunately, there are no alternative sites for lorries in Buxton but we're aiming to complete the work and re-open as quickly as possible.

"In the meantime I'd like to thank people for bearing with us whilst we carry out these essential maintenance works."

Alternative car parking in Buxton is available at:

  • Market Place
  • The Slopes, Buxton Town Hall
  • Spring Gardens, Wye Street
  • Pavilion Gardens, St John's Road
  • South Street
  • Bridge Street

Alternative parking for coaches is available on Burlington Road and at Pooles Cavern.
