Have your say

Residents have until Monday to comment on controversial plans to drill for gas in a Derbyshire village.

Seven Star Natural Gas Limited is seeking planning permission to carry out the extraction on land off Dark Lane, Calow, to generate electricity for up to 5,000 homes.

Villagers have voiced fears about noise and air pollution but the applicants have defended the proposals.

Derbyshire County Council – which will decide whether or not to approve planning consent – is holding a public consultation on the proposals.

To comment on the plans, visit by Monday.
