People urged to have say on heritage plans

Written byRICH GUTTRIDGE

PEOPLE are invited to have their say on the future of their town or village in South Derbyshire.

In 2011, the council requested the views of the public regarding 11 South Derbyshire areas, setting out which parts of those which were deemed worthy of protection and other parts which could be earmarked for development.

Now members of the public are invited to drop-in sessions to discuss the plans further, with areas up for discussion including Swadlincote, Melbourne, Swarkstone and Ticknall.

Several sites in Swadlincote could be set for development, including The Co-op and post office, in West Street, and the Somerfield and Poundstretcher stores in High Street.

Philip Heath, of South Derbyshire District Council, said: “We have worked hard to make these documents interesting and informative.”

A meeting will be held in the Melbourne Assembly Rooms, in High Street, Melbourne, from 2.30pm on February 20, and also at Sharpe’s Pottery Museum, in West Street, Swadlincote, on February 27, also beginning at 2.30pm.
