Councillors have voted to delay a debate about the proposed sale of Ripley Town Hall.
A 1,200-signature petition was handed in before the Amber Valley Borough Council meeting, calling for the hall to be returned to Ripley Town Council.
The borough council was given the 130-year-old building in the 1970s but plans to sell it to help save £2m over the next two years.
Councillors voted to defer a debate until they are closer to a decision. This seems somewhat strange because wouldn’t you have a debate to enable a decision to be reached? Perhaps that is why I am not a councillor – I do not have twisted logic!Follow @pdview
