Work to repair a number of roads in Buxton is to take place after being approved by Derbyshire County Council.

The authority has agreed to spend £352,000 which had not been allocated from £4 million of funding announced in December 2012 on a number of specific schemes, including nine in Buxton.

Among the work to be carried out is carriageway resurfacing on Macclesfield Road (£15,000), footway resurfacing on Clough Street (£2,000) and carriageway patching on Dale Side (£15,000).

Cabinet Member for Jobs, Economy and Transport, Cllr Dean Collins said: “This money is a great boost to us in repairing local roads which are important to local residents as well as helping Derbyshire businesses stay better connected.”
