    A waiting room at Matlock bus station is being put up for rent as a shop.

    This comes seven months after Derbyshire Dales district councillors opted to find new uses for several of its public toilets and buildings.

    Councillors and council officers had consistently referred to ongoing issues with vandalism at Matlock bus station and particularly in its waiting room.

    They said that the waiting room, built in the mid 2000s, was rarely used and would be best used as a shop.

    Councillor Steve Flitter said: "I fully support this, the building is in a terrible state and needs to be put to good use. We have to give the site another chance."

    The 682 sq ft waiting room is now on the market with estate agent Salloways for £15,000 a year.
