Councillor’s sign granted

DEPUTY mayor of Amber Valley Cllr Jack Brown MBE received a ‘slap on the wrist’ from planning board councillors - after his company erected a sign without permission.

The 15ft sign at the entrance of JB Transport, in Victoria Street, Ironville, was put up in January. It was given retrospective planning permission at Monday night’s planning board, with Cllr Brown offering an ‘unreserved apology’.
