Liberal Democrat councillor Ross Shipman, who represents Tupton on North East Derbyshire District Council, now says an independent review is taking place into the sale of the land and the planning approval.

Anyone who wishes to submit evidence should email ross.shipman@ne-derbyshire.gov.uk, david.hancock@ne-derbyshire.gov.uk or pam.windley@ne-derbyshire.gov.uk by the end of Wednesday.

Coun Shipman said: "I appreciate this turnaround is very short, but please submit all your evidence and experiences of this process so we can stop this development."

The report is due to be completed at the beginning of July, he added.
