Go-ahead for new homes

Eight new affordable homes are set to be built in Youlgrave.

The Peak District National Park Authority granted permission for six house and two bungalows in Conksbury Lane.

The homes will include a range of sustainable features, such as solar panels and extensive double glazing which faces south to get as much natural solar heat as possible.

But some residents opposed the application, saying the development would create congestion, remove three on-street parking spaces and spoil open space in the village.
