A PUBLIC inquiry will take place to determine an appeal over plans to build on the former College Fields in Rolleston.
Burton and South Derbyshire College submitted an appeal when plans for a 100-home development were refused by planners at East Staffordshire Borough Council.
Members of the planning committee said they were concerned about the conflict between the development and the wishes of local residents, as set out in the village Neighbourhood Development Plan.
The appeal officially began last Monday.
Campaigners against the development have said they will continue to fight the appeal.
