What is happening now consultation has closed?

The feedback from the consultation is being used to develop a revised scheme and ensure that this fits within the parameters of government's funding and is financially viable. This includes a review of a number of elements including:

  • Seeking to improve disability access on station link
  • Expand cycle facilities, e.g. secure cycle stands within Spring Gardens
  • Review the extent of parking at Station
  • Review public art proposals - so that better reflects local character
  • Respond better to local character in the architecture of streets and spaces in the detailed design stage
  • Explore more opportunities to provide sustainability features

The revised proposals will need to be reviewed both by the Council and commercial owners who are required to co-invest in proposals.  At this early stage, no commitment of resources has been made. 

Subject to approval, a full Business Case would be submitted to the government at the start of June 2020.

It is likely to be a very competitive process and, although Buxton has been shortlisted, there is no guarantee that Buxton will secure this funding.

We should hear if we have been successful by early Autumn 2020, but during the summer we will continue working closely with the private sector developer partner to refine the designs and develop the proposals. This could include preparation of a planning application, which will provide a further opportunity for consultation, including all the design elements of the final scheme.
