A6 Buxton roundabout – have your say

Published: 13 August 2019

Derbyshire residents are being asked to give their views on plans for a new High Peak roundabout.

We've put forward proposals for a new roundabout on the A6 in Buxton to support new housing developments.

The roundabout and a new connecting road are set to be sited to the north of the town to create access for house building in the Hogshaw area to the west of the A6 and on land to the south of Waterswallows Road and east of Tongue Lane. 

The work is expected to cost around £3m, of which £2m is coming from Government-backed housing organisation Homes England, with the rest coming from the developers.

Planning permission for the roundabout and road needs to be agreed and an application is likely to be made next month (September 2019). If the scheme gets the go-ahead work is expected to start next year.

Councillor Simon Spencer, Derbyshire County Council Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Infrastructure, said:

“The overall project has already been agreed in principal as part of High Peak Borough Council’s Local Plan for the Buxton area but we welcome any feedback on these road improvements to help inform our final designs.”
