Have your say

HAVE your say on a blueprint for the future of North East Derbyshire at a series of exhibitions over the coming days.

The borough council’s proposed local plan for the next 20 years sets out what land should be allocated for more than 5,000 new homes and business developments.

The document also includes a review of the green belt.

Consultation closes on September 13, before which the document is on public display at a series of sessions.

Today residents can view an exhibition about the proposals at Clay Cross Library between 9.30am and 12.30pm.

The display will then take place at Wingerworth Village Hall tomorrow, from 4pm to 7pm, when there will also be the chance to speak to council officers.

Further chances to view the exhibition will be at North East Derbyshire Council’s offices in Saltergate, Chesterfield, between 8.30am and 5pm on Friday and from Monday to Thursday next week.

People can also still comment via the council’s website - - or they can fill in a consultation leaflet available at public buildings and libraries around the district.
