Council chiefs look set to make a decision over adult care proposals which include the possible closure of eight council-run day centres – including one in Shirebrook – in autumn.

Derbyshire Council is currently reviewing responses to a public consultation over the future of services for adults with learning disabilities, which include the potential closure of the facility on Carter Lane, Shirebrook.

The authority recently revealed four of the under-threat centres, including on Oxcroft Lane, Bolsover, were already out of use, but argued they could not be described as ‘closed’ as the services were still available at different locations.
