Bakewell Road views

Concerned residents have set up a Facebook page to determine public opinion on controversial plans for the centre of Matlock.

The ‘Moving Matlock Forward’ page was created as a ‘politically unbiased talking point’ for local people to vent their concerns and opinions on the future of the Bakewell Road site in Matlock.

The page was set up following the decision by Derbyshire Dales District Council to approve Henry Davidson Developments as the preferred developer for the site.

The company’s bid included a food store, five retail units, six duplex apartments, 273 car parking spaces, a hotel and restaurant.
