Trevor Osborne Property Group is planning to restore the Grade I listed Buxton Crescent to create a five-star thermal spa hotel. It is working in partnership with CP Holdings, High Peak Borough Council and Derbyshire County Council.

The main construction contract has an estimated value of £22.5m. Contractors have until 9th June to submit their interest and invitations to tender will then go out in the summer.  

Buxton Crescent built in 1780-90 by John Carr of York for the fifth Duke of Devonshire and the spa was one of England's most popular holiday spots.

The new hotel will have 87 bedrooms and suites and one of only two natural mineral water spa facilities in Britain.

The Assembly Room and Card Room will be restored to their former glory and both will be open to the public for concerts, events and as function suites for visitors and residents to enjoy. Other elements of the project include a new separate restaurant in the Pump Room and shops in the Colonnade.

Architect Stride Treglown has worked up the plans. Other members of the professional; team on board include structural engineer Faber Maunsell, quantity surveyor Northcroft, M&E engineer Building Services Partnership and hydrology consultant GWP.
