The council’s planning team has recommended that councillors should refuse permission for a new supermarket in Ilkeston.

The plan to build a large Morrison’s store and 39 homes on the current Derby College campus in Field Road is part of a controversial scheme by the college to move its Ilkeston campus into the town centre.
