Heritage : Policy Representation
Client: Glossop Cartons
Paul Butler Associates Ltd represented the interests of Glossop Cartons a major local employer and worked to secure the removal of their premises from a proposed extension to Padfield Conservation Area which was being promoted by High Peak Borough Council. Had the proposed extension to the Conservation Area been made as originally proposed by the Council, the future redevelopment potential of the mill site owned by Glossop Cartons would have been severely restricted by placing an onus on the company to retain the mill.
Paul Butler Associates Ltd acted on behalf of Glossop Cartons and provided strategic development advice and detailed policy representations on the 'Padfield Conservation Area Character Appraisal September 2014 Draft for Public Consultation'. The Council subsequently accepted the policy representation made by Paul Butler Associates Ltd and the mill site was excluded from the proposed Conservation Area extension. The company has since relocated to larger, modern premises, and the mill premises will be sold for redevelopment.
