TOWNSFOLK will gather at Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School tonight to give their views on plans for 400 homes in Ashbourne.

Derbyshire Dales District Council's Local Plan Advisory Committee will meet at the school to listen to representations before putting potential sites for development in priority categories.

A meeting of the committee at the Miraj Hotel on Monday night discussed plans for developments of upto 50 homes at Doveridge and Brailsford.

The meeting revealed that Brailsford Primary School, which was identified as in need of a new premises in 1969, will never achieve a new building without significant development in the village to offer funding.

Head of planning at the district council, Paul Wilson, told the committee: "The allocation of the Luke Lane site for 50 units in so far as it being linked to the school, would mean that the county council would be in the position of releasing the current site. That site has the possibility of 25 units and 75 units is certainly significant enough to fund highways and school requirements."
