A LIFELONG Marehay resident has spoken of her fears over a potential major development near her home.

Nottingham-based Godwin Developments has taken a 17-year option on land between the A38 and B6179 west of Warmwells Lane.

Loriene Skevington, 75, from Warmwells Lane, says she would not want to stay in her house, where she has lived since 1968, if the proposals to turn the 60-acre Greenbelt site into a mixture of housing and industry get the go ahead.

The former Ripley librarian of 15 years fears the development would cause misery for her as it would spoil the rural view from her back garden and cause a major increase in traffic on Warmwells Lane.
