According to what appears in the D.T. it looks like the town centre will eventually end up being just up market flats and yuppy bars and the businesses of Chesterfield will end up on the periphery.

Every time someone mentions a large empty building in town there's talk of flats.


This weeks D.T. page 18....... "BURLINGTON HOUSE WILL BE CONVERTED INTO FLATS ABOVE EXISTING BUSINESSES"

I did read somewhere where people either trying to buy,or insure {or both} flats above business premises find it's not that easy as it's simply because they ARE above businesses.

S'pose we'll find out if the places are insurable, after they have been done.

Saw something on Facebook about this project. Someone mentioned parking for said development.
Someone replied, can't they use the underground parking where the pet shop was  :))

Just as an add on to this post.........

had occasion to visit a friend of mine in Brampton this morning and drop the wife off in town, got as far as Penmore in Hasland and the traffic was choc a bloc.
Seems the council in it's infinite wisdom picked Saturday {of all days} to close off the bypass from Temple Normanton down to Horns bridge.
Needless to say I did a u turn and went back home.

This information was in fact in this weeks D.T. but no doubt it still wouldn't have stopped the mayhem.

There appears to be a rumour that Clay Cross is planning to re open it's railway station to encourage more people to visit, if this does happen it looks like yet another nail in Chesterfields coffin.

Was in town the other day only to find Bowrings butchers on Glumangate has closed and I believe the R.B.S. on Stephenson place is now no more.

It comes to something when potentially a small "pit village" could end up outdoing one of the major towns in Derbyshire for visitors and footfall in general. I think Chesterfield council should take a long hard look at what's happening there.

Went to town yesterday, yes I know it sounds like I go a lot to a place I don't like but it's only because my bank is there, believe me if they opened a branch in C/Cross {or anywhere else near me for that matter} I wouldn't go to town at all.

Noticed they've opened a new Subway on low pavement whilst the other one near Dents still seems to be trading.
The market was "bustling" with all of 6 stalls in use, so much so the traders spread their wares over several tables mainly because they can.

We went by bus to Derby the other day for a few hours {Wed} hour there hour back. Got off the bus there and immediately bumped into a relation of mine,what's the chances eh! Had a nice cuppa in the Eagle market, it seemed like "half day" as a few stalls were closed but it was still busier than Chesterfield markets "busier" days, but I noticed on the way out there was a petition for people to sign as it seems someone is wanting to close it so that could account for some of the closed shops in there. had a good walk round the Cathedral quarter and looked round the Cathedral itself. Still plenty of shops and very busy, then there's the Eagle centre or it might be called Westfield now but that's like a Meadowhall but cleaner.
