Heritage StatementPlanning Statement
The practice was employed by B and R Developments to secure planning permission for a mixed use redevelopment scheme for a prominent vacant 19th century five-storey textile mill within Glossop Town Centre. The practice co-ordinated and submitted a planning application for the comprehensive redevelopment of the former mill site into commercial and residential accommodation. The scheme was designed by architect Pozzoni. A subsequent revision application was approved to reconfigure floor space to create a public library, 9 additional apartments and for use of a listed Gatehouse for commercial use. The practice worked closely with High Peak Conservation and Planning Officers to secure the future of one of the Towns’ most iconic former textile mills.

The impressive stone built mill now includes a 62-bed hotel, retail units, bar, restaurants, 49 apartments and a new 15,575 sq.ft. food retail unit all set within a new car park and public realm courtyard. Issues addressed included flood risk, affordable housing and conservation matters.
