Toby revealed his pride in representing a town that, despite the economic downturn, appears to be “bucking the trend” as highlighted in a recent survey. He spoke of the exciting developments in the planning stages examples being the Northern GatewayChesterfield Waterside and the Walton Works Site.

When members pondered on the need for yet another Supermarket in Chesterfield, Mr Perkins view was that there are many small vibrant and friendly business in the town, selling specialist items, which supermarkets do not stock, and that our Market is a perfect example of this being a valuable asset to our friendly Historic Market Town.

Toby emphasised the need to keep Chesterfield vibrant and one of the largest Towns for visitors, aided by it’s close proximity to the Peak District.

Mr Perkins went on to offer members a tour of The Houses of Parliament which met with the approval of many of the members.
