The Inspire centre is home to 14 apartments let by Great Places Housing Group for affordable rent, easing a local shortage of such accommodation. One of several partner organisations, Great Places is a housing association that provides over 15,000 high-quality homes in 30 council areas across the north west and beyond.
Great Places, who¬†purchased and developed the site, secured more than ¬£2m for the Inspire project, ‚Äď including funding from the Homes and Communities Agency. A contemporary four-storey extension incorporates reclaimed materials from the old building and outside there is car parking and a landscaped garden. Apartments include original features such as stained glass windows, wooden trusses and some have far-reaching views to the Peak District.
