Here is a vision of how Chesterfield’s iconic Co-op store could look if ambitious multi-million pound proposals are approved.

A planning application will soon be submitted which seeks to convert the landmark former Co-op store into a hotel, restaurant and fitness centre.

The large site, in Elder Way, has been empty since the department store closed in July 2013.

Now, Central England Cooperative, which still owns the site, is working in partnership with Jomast Developments Ltd, who will shortly submit a planning application for a scheme.

For full details of the proposals, see this week’s paper.

And, of course, be sure to let us know what you think of the proposals. Email comment@derbyshiretimes.co.uk tweet to @D_Times or join the conversation on Facebook.
