BackgroundThe District Council is calling for Expressions of Interest for a building (previously used as public convenience) and a small section of land adjoining. The interest expressed can be for just the building or the land or both. A wide range of activities will be considered subject to planning permissions and, in particular, activities which improve the area as a visitor attraction, increase footfall and support the economy all year around will be favoured. They will need to be compatible with the surrounding and future land use in the wider area.
LocationArtists Corner is between Matlock and Matlock Bath on the River Derwent. The building is adjacent to the road and the end of the car park. The land that will be considered for lease or licence is to the rear of the building (towards the river) and a section of part of the existing car park. The grassed area west of the building will remain as public open space.
