COUNCIL chiefs have agreed plans for a new 750-pupil school for Tibshelf.

The £14.5m plan was agreed at a meeting of Derbyshire County Council’s cabinet on Tuesday.

Education chief Cllr Mike Longden said: “I’m delighted we have been able to put together a financial package which means we can deliver on our promise of a new school for Tibshelf.”

It is expected the new school will open by 2013.
