Glossop's Open Halls project

Glossop has a number of fine public buildings rich in historical and architectural significance. These landmark buildings: the Town Hall, Market Hall, Municipal Buildings are all owned by High Peak Borough Council and, in the case of Victoria Hall, held in trust.

We know these buildings matter to local people because you told us so when we asked for your views as part of the Glossop Design and Place Making Strategy. In line with your comments, the strategy says that the buildings should be kept for public use, with the focus on public services and shopping.

To achieve these aims, big decisions must be made. There is a lot of work to be done, especially to the upper floors of Victoria Hall and the Town Hall, which are empty and in need of restoration. The Market Hall too needs investment if it is to remain attractive and convenient for traders and shoppers.

Town Hall complex

Following the submission of a funding bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund, initial plans showing possible future uses of the Town Hall, Market Hall and Municipal Buildings have now been released. You can view the plans and tell us what you think of them in the 'Open Halls - have your say' section below.


We want to explain to you our objectives, what we can and can't do, how we intend to make progress and how long we think it could take
