A chimney which was at the heart of a former textile mill has been demolished today.

The demolition comes just days before an appeal is to be heard over the redevelopment of the area.

In August last year Staffordshire Moorlands District Council refused Cheshire-based Renew Land Developments permission to redevelop the Slimma factory in Barngate Street, Leek with 20 houses and 12 apartments.

The application, which sparked 70 objections, is surrounded by Barngate Street, James Street, Waterloo Street and Langford Street.

Residents in the area raised concerns over the design and parking, as only 27 places were being made available.

Following the refusal the developers submitted an appeal against the district council's decision to the planning inspectorate at Bristol.

Now it has been announced that the appeal will be heard through a public hearing set for 10am on Tuesday February 11 2014 at Moorlands House.
