Residents on a Chapel-en-le-Frith housing estate are up in arms about the loss of an area of public open space.

They say the piece of land on Burnside Avenue was designated as public open space as part of the development by Barratts, and locals have been using the area for community and recreational activities for several years.

A planning application for nine apartments on the site was refused by councillors last year with one of their reasons being the loss of public open space, though the applicant has appealed this decision.
