Councillors voted in favour of publishing a revised version of the controversial High Peak Local Plan at a highly charged meeting in Buxton.

As previously reported, the authority voted against publishing a previous version of the long-awaited document on March 18.

Speaking at the Octagon on Tuesday, Cllr John Pritchard spoke out against the proposal, saying: “My feeling is that this failure to engage with the public defies the spirit of the local plan. What we are voting on tonight is unsound and I shall be voting against it. If that means reporting me to the standards committee then so be it.”
