Resurfacing of Council car parks set to start this week

Published on 7 September 2020

Off-street car parks across the High Peak are to be resurfaced this autumn - starting with three Buxton locations this week.

High Peak Borough Council is investing almost £556,000 in the improvement programme which includes resurfacing and line painting.

The work will start with the resurfacing of the Market Place (Town Hall) car park on Monday 7 September; the South Street car park on Tuesday 8 September; and the rest of the Market Place car park (Sainsbury's) on Wednesday 10 September.

In each case, the car parks will need to be closed whilst the work is carried out and it is expected to completed in two days with the facilities re-opening thereafter.

The other car parks to benefit in this first phase are:

  • The Slopes in Buxton - work is scheduled to take place between 5 and 12 October
  • Edale car park - from 5 to 14 October
  • Thornbrook Road, Chapel-en-le-Frith on 6 October

A further eight car parks at locations in Glossop, Hadfield, New Mills and Whaley Bridge are also due to be resurfaced once this first phase of the programme is complete.

Councillor Damien Greenhalgh, Deputy Leader and Executive Councillor for Regeneration, Tourism and Leisure, said: "As part of our commitment to our Borough's high streets, we're investing in works to improve our off-street parking facilities in towns and villages across the High Peak - with these being just the first batch.

"Obviously, resurfacing work of this nature will cause some short-term disruption which we have tried to keep to a minimum. I would just ask that shoppers, businesses and visitors please bear with us whilst we carry out these necessary upgrades and thank people in advance for their patience."

To allow for any changes to the programme, notice signs will be posted at the car parks seven days prior to work starting on site and on the Council's Twitter and Facebook accounts.
