Ambitious plans for a new health, care and public services hub in Buxton town centre

Ambitious plans for a new health, care and public services hub in Buxton town centre have moved a step closer. We purchased the former Nestle Waters (UK) Ltd bottling plant off Station Road last year as part of our plan to provide new town-centre facilities, set to replace older estate in the town. We have now met with public sector partners including High Peak Borough Council and Derbyshire Council to view plans and discuss the project after securing £100,000 from the Government’s One Public Estate programme to help us develop the business case.

DCHS chief operating officer, William Jones, commented: “We’re delighted that together we are making good progress on realising this exciting vision to provide modern and efficient public services together in a single, modern and purpose-built facility.
