Plans for a controversial 5.5 metre high noise barrier in a historic market town look set to be scrapped following public outcry.

Derbyshire Dales District Council’s environment committee will meet on Thursday, February 27, to discuss the barrier, which has been proposed to go around the Agricultural Business Centre, in Bakewell, to reduce noise.

The council had a legal duty to respond after it received complaints about noise from the cattle market so it came up with plans for the barrier, which would be 180 metres long and cost around £100,000 to build.
