Current Public Consultations

Erewash Borough Council has now published a draft version of the Developer Contributions (S.106) SPD for a period of 6 weeks, in order to allow residents, developers and other organisations and persons to have their say on this document.

The Draft Developer Contributions SPD identifies the infrastructure needs of the Borough and then assesses the viability of new housing development to meet those needs, and consequently provides guidance on which of these needs developments will be expected to contribute to.

National Rural Crime Survey 2018

Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa is urging anyone living or working in the county's rural towns and villages to make time to share their views and play a positive part in the response to rural crime and antisocial behaviour by completing the 2018 National Rural Crime Survey.

The survey and further information can be found here www.derbyshire-pcc.gov.uk/RuralCrimeSurvey

The survey has been adapted specifically for Derbyshire residents from the 2018 National Rural Crime Survey, being carried out by the National Rural Crime Network.  It is designed to provide the Commissioner a clearer picture of rural criminality in the county, preventative measures that are being taken by members of the rural community and identify particular problems in different areas of the County.

A similar survey was carried out in 2015 and the Commissioner is keen to see what changes have occurred since then.

Mr Dhindsa said: "We really do want to get it right for our rural communities and spare hardworking families and business owners the misery of dealing with crime. Our new Rural Crime Team and Wildlife Crime Officers have improved relationships with farmers, agricultural businesses, residents and traders and this has helped to increase reporting of crime but we need to reach everybody and give everyone a chance of airing their views.”

Please share this with all contacts, families or friends who may have an interest in rural communities.

Whatever your views - positive or negative - the Commissioner wants to hear them. Make your voice heard.

Proposed public library service strategy - Libraries for Derbyshire

Derbyshire County Council has launched a 12 week public consultation for their proposed public library service strategy Libraries for Derbyshire. You can complete their consultation questionnaire at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/librariesforderbyshire

As part of the consultation they have organised drop in sessions across all 45 libraries in Derbyshire for people to meet with them and to discuss their proposals in person. In addition, in the 20 communities proposed for community managed libraries they have arranged focus groups for anyone interested in getting involved to give their views, discuss any practicalities and challenges and decide if they want to take their interest further.

They are also holding a Mobile Library Service focus group to look at alternative methods of delivery for the Mobile Library Service. For example, community organisations running the mobile library service or possibly providing transport to the nearest static library for those that need it.

The Mobile Library Service focus group is on Wednesday 11th July 6-8pm at Members Room, County Hall Matlock.

Residents are invited to engage with this process.

To read the proposed strategy and to find out more details on all the consultation events, including details on how to book your tickets for the focus group please go to DCC’s dedicated library strategy webpage www.derbyshire.gov.uk/librariesforderbyshire
