Have your say on town

The public is being invited to have its say on the future of Wirksworth.

The Princes Foundation will be holding two meetings in Anthony Gell School on November 21 to discuss how the town will change over the next 15 years.

One meeting will start at 4pm and the other will start at 7pm.

The foundation is working with the Future Wirksworth team, set up and supported by Wirksworth Town Council, to come up with a plan for the town, which will eventually be the subject of a referendum.

Derbyshire Dales District Council has indicated that Wirksworth is likely to expand by 300 homes in the coming years.  

The town plan will take this growth into account and cover the implications for schools, roads and facilities.
