IT’S not unusual to have to face a long wait for a bus – but residents in Chinley have been waiting over a year for a bus shelter.

The previous shelter on Station Road was demolished by a bus just over 12 months ago and locals have been fighting for a replacement ever since.

Chinley, Buxworth and Brownside Parish Councillor Audrey Bramah said: “I have been making phone calls since July regarding this matter and Derbyshire County Council have been very co-operative, but because our shelter needed a narrower roof, the plans had to be re-drawn and then it had to be rebuilt to new specifications.”

Cllr Bramah added that she was delighted the bus shelter finally had been replaced so local residents had somewhere to shelter from the winter weather while waiting for the bus.
