Comments by High Peak Access on the Local Plan for High Peak
High Peak Access had some concerns about disabled access into and around the new Howard Town Mill development in Glossop.
A small steering group of volunteers from High Peak Access had been working hard over the past two years with Mark Rushworth, Leisure Contract & Sports Development Officer, and Stacy Wilde, General Manager, New Mills Leisure Centre; to help shape, and ensure that the Leisure Centre’s renovation into a Village concept was, and is accessible for disabled people with a wide range of impairments.
