Press Release - High Street, Chapel-en-le-Frith
"It has come to the attention of Chapel-en-le-Frith Parish Council that rumours are circulating regarding the Council and land to the rear of 9 High Street, Chapel-en-le-Frith. For the record we would like to state that the Council is not involved in and does not anticipate in the foreseeable future becoming involved in any discussions to purchase any land linked to this property. The Council did have some initial exploratory discussions with the owner, but it was subsequently decided not to pursue the matter.
The Parish Council is not responsible for either the buttress supporting the building or the traffic lights. These are there as a result of action by High Peak Borough Council. Due to the significant ongoing concerns, complaints, risk to pedestrians, disruption to traffic and general inconvenience caused, Chapel Parish Council is actively seeking urgent clarification on a formal and regular basis to determine the current situation with regard to any works that may be undertaken, and their duration, and will publish any appropriate findings in due course."
