In 2016, Crowley Associates helped promote the site of the former Britannia Mill for housing. The site is currently in a state of dereliction. The mill and adjoining buildings were destroyed by fire in 2005. 


The main issues faced by the Britannia Mill development included:

  • The site being in the Green Belt

  • The site is in part of a Conservation area

  • The adjacent Bugsworth canal basin


The site is situated in Green Belt, is adjacent to the Bugsworth Basin Scheduled monument, canal basin and conservation area and 16 listed buildings within 1km. Within the conversation area, there are numerous non-designated heritage assets, including the Peak Forest Canal is itself a non-designated heritage asset. Crowley associates helped promote the site and secure a successful pre-application for 110 dwellings. 

We are working closely with the architects and the landscape architects and leading a multi-disciplinary team (including heritage consultants) to deliver a Masterplan for redevelopment of the whole site with a view to accommodating a mix of residential (110 dwellings), and leisure, uses as well as an amount of community infrastructure.

Following on from our community consultation, we are in the process of preparing and submitting the planning application, with the support of the Local Authority.
