Planning application submitted to convert historic complex in Derbyshire

Matthew Montague Architects has submitted a planning application to Derbyshire Dales District Council to convert a 300-year-old derelict mill complex near Matlock, Derbyshire.

The proposal seeks to revitalise Lumsdale Mill by transforming it into 11 apartments and 14 houses.

If approved, the development will include a mix of two, three, and four-bedroom apartments, as well as affordable homes.

Architect at Matthew Montague Architects Paul Myers, said “The redevelopment of the site will provide much-needed quality accommodation whilst preserving and securing the buildings for many years to come. The new dwellings combine heritage, innovation and sustainability; it will be a great place to live.”

Matthew Montague of Matthew Montague Architects said: “Because the buildings are in a varying state of disrepair and lack modern facilities, they are not viable for ongoing commercial use. With considered design the new development will fund the restoration of important historic structures and ensure the long-term preservation of the site, whilst providing great new facilities for business to work from. It’s a fantastic site, that is significant to the county’s history, we are delighted to be involved with its evolution and to help develop and preserve it for the next hundred years.”

A decision on the  scheme is expected from the district council in the coming months.
