Rocklands: an inspector listens

This is a long article, but it needs to be to thoroughly cover all the details – and it’s also necessary, as so many of our readers care about this subject. Previous articles have generated lots of comments and feedback – and it seems to represent something much bigger that is happening within the town, writes Zelly Restorick. This report is from Chris Hurrell of Save Ecclesbourne Glen (SEG), who attended and gave evidence to the hearing. As you’ll read, I believe you will feel a sense of hope that this was a fair and inclusive hearing – and that the skilled, determined and tenacious group of individuals involved in SEG, who have invested so much energy and time, have truly made an incredible difference to this process. However, many questions concerning Rocklands remain unanswered.
