People are being urged to give their views on plans to improve a Derbyshire town centre.

South Derbyshire District Council has drawn up three draft masterplans to transform Swadlincote over the next 10 to 15 years.

The proposals include more restaurants, shops as well as improvements to green spaces and pedestrian and cycle routes.

People are being asked to comment on the plans, which are on the council's website, by 15 January.

Councillor Bob Wheeler, leader of South Derbyshire District Council, said he wanted the town to build a reputation as a "vibrant visitor destination in the heart of The National Forest".

"We are committed to working in partnership and exploring innovative opportunities to help make the town an even better place to live, work and visit while preserving its proud history and heritage.

"The district council wants the town's residents, visitors and businesses to be involved every step of the way and provide us with any feedback," he said.
