School extension recommended for approval

Eddie Bisknell

Local Democracy Reporter

A four-classroom school extension at a Belper primary is set to get the go-ahead, creating space for 140 more pupils and jobs for eight more teachers.

The plans for St John's Primary School in Laund Nook would also see a new studio for PE and drama, and an outdoor reception play area, along with 14 further parking spots.

St John's Primary School in Laund Nook

As it stands, the school has 490 pupils, which would increase to 620, and the number of teachers would grow from 27 to 35. Belper Town Council has objected to the proposals, stating that it is "extremely concerned" that the plans will cause traffic havoc for the surrounding area.

In total, 41 members of the public have submitted objections to the proposed scheme.

In a report, a council officer, recommending that the plans are approved, said: "I do not consider that, with appropriate conditions, there would be any significant detrimental effect from any accumulation of the potential environmental and amenity impacts relating to parking and traffic referred to."

Rutland MP Duncan tells Rees-Mogg to 'pipe down' on Brexit

Gavin Bevis

BBC News

Rutland MP Sir Alan Duncan has told Tory backbencher Jacob Rees-Mogg to "pipe down" after he said the prime minister risks a revolt if the type of Brexit she promised is not delivered.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, Mr Rees-Mogg said he and other members of the 60-strong group of Eurosceptic Tory MPs he leads would reject a deal that did not amount to a clean break with the EU.

Foreign Office minister Duncan said in a tweet his Tory colleague's "insolence" was "just too much".

He added it risked "debasing the government, party, country and himself".
