Millstone of a car park

Over ten-years, the gigantic, but derelict, AGD multi-storey car park, widely fronting on both Markham Road and Beetwell Street, has been sixty-million people’s first or last vision of the Peak District – and a dreadful eyesore for Chesterfield. This concrete colossus, mothballed and in limbo, is a millstone round the neck of our town. I challenge Chesterfield Borough Council, or more appropriately, Royal Mail, its owner, to come up with a credible plan for its demolition and site conversion, by October 31, this year.
