Residents to view plans for proposed Denby village

Plans for a village with up to 3,000 homes in Derbyshire are set to go on display.

Amber Valley District Council is holding drop-in events from 21-27 February for people to discuss the village, to be built near Denby.

As well as housing, plans include new schools, shops and health services.

The council said the village could make a significant contribution towards meeting the need for housing growth in the borough.

A public consultation on the proposals is being held until 23 March.

Suggestions for a development of between 1,000 and 3,000 homes on land east of the A38 and north of Denby Bottles have been put forward by the Commercial Estates Group.

The council said the new settlement would reduce the pressure to build on the edge of the borough's towns, particularly Belper and Ripley.

The drop-in events are being held in Denby, Belper, Ripley and Kilburn.
