As part of the development, the investment would ensure that every classroom can accommodate mobility equipment.

The report detailed how mobility facility and storage would be installed in every classroom.

It is intended that students could leave the equipment they use to get to school in these areas and swap them for those they use as part of daily school life.

Derbyshire Live reported on how the authority is set to debate the plans on October 7, with planning officers recommending that the application is approved.
