A controversial Derbyshire County Council planning meeting being held to decide the fate of the Glossop Library site was postponed yesterday (Monday), due to snow. However, Labour’s candidates Damien Greenhalgh and Ellie Wilcox were still present at the former St. Luke’s School site at 10 o’clock, when the original site visit was planned to go ahead.
Damien Greenhalgh said, ‘It seems that even the weather is against this proposal. Though the cancellation was very last minute, we understand that the roads around Derbyshire have been left particularly treacherous due to the wintery conditions. Nevertheless, we were still there to support the voice of the local community regarding the fate of Glossop Library.’
A date has not yet been confirmed for the re-scheduled meeting, however the Chair of Derbyshire County Council’s Planning Committee stated that the application will be brought back to the committee at a date and time to be determined.
