Our vision for the Glossop halls is that they become a key asset for the town, driving economic development and owned by the community.
This vision came a step closer to reality in recent months with the formal signing of a partnership agreement, creating a body, which we see will ultimately manage the halls complex into the future.
This partnership is between 4 organisations:
- High Peak Borough Council
- The Glossopdale Trust
- The Bureau (formerly the Volunteer Bureau)
- The Heritage Trust
Going forward, we believe that the priorities of the partners (Heritage, Community and Local government) will create the perfect platform for the project.
The priority of the partnership at the moment is managing the process of identifying & applying for appropriate funding to make the project a reality.
Currently, the focus of this activity is on an HLF bid to support the project, whatever the outcome of this bid, we believe we have a strategy to take the project forward; but more of that in the future.
