A DRAFT masterplan for the redevelopment to the former Dorma factory site, in Chinley, is to be unveiled at a public consultation event today (Thursday).

Copperleaf Group Ltd’s plans for the 28 acre site will be on display for the community to view at Chinley and Buxworth Women’s Institute, Lower Lane, Chinley from 3pm-7pm.

A second event will be held tomorrow, Friday October 21 at the Town Hall, Chapel-en-le-Frith also from 3pm-7pm.

The proposals will include space for commercial premises, a children’s nursery, up to 225 homes including affordable housing and areas of public open space.

During the consultation visitors will have the opportunity to discuss the plans with the development team. There will also be an opportunity at the event to provide feedback on the proposals.

A planning application is expected to be lodged with High Peak Borough Council later this year.
