Invasive Species
Please see the information factsheet here for dealing with pests such as invasive weeds like Japanese Knotweed, Himalayan Balsam and Giant Hogweed. If you think you have Japanese Knotweed or need help in identifying it, please see our factsheet here.


Non Native Species

Asian Hornet

There are several key features to look out for which will help you distinguish between Asian hornets, and our native European hornet, Vespa crabro:
•The Asian hornet is smaller, with queens up to 30 mm, and workers up to 25 mm in length. European hornet queens can reach 35 mm
•A key feature of Asian hornets is its almost entirely dark abdomen except for the 4th segment which is yellow. European hornets, on the other hand, have a brown and yellow striped abdomen (see below)
•Whereas the legs of European hornets are dark, Asian hornets have bright yellow tips to their legs
•Asian hornets are only active during the day, unlike our native hornet which is most active at night

If you think you may have spotted an Asian hornet please either email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 
Pollutants come in a wide range of forms, and can affect our quality of life and health.
We carry out a wide range of duties and functions including air quality monitoring and management, dealing with neighbourhood nuisance including loud noise, obnoxious smells, dust and smoke. You can find out more information below regarding the following types of pollution: 


Air
We operate a monitoring programme for atmospheric pollutants using a network of equipment, and take action to make sure that problems are dealt with swiftly.
You can find out more about air pollution and the laws that help us to take action against it on the Environment Agency website. You might also like to look at our pages about Smoke Control. 
If you have a query about air quality, or think that someone near you is polluting the air, please contact our Clean and Green hotline (details below) or use our Online Form.

Please see our annual status reports below:


Asbestos
Asbestos could be present in any building that was built or refurbished before the year 2000. It was commonly used in the building industry in the products such as:
Corrugated sheets for roofing and cladding
Gutters and downpipes
Flat sheeting for partitioning, cladding and door facings
Flue pipes.
Asbestos sheeting is a grey, hard, brittle material containing asbestos fibre. Older properties may have lagging that contains asbestos around any original pipework. Asbestos insulation board was commonly used in the 1960's and 1970's and looks like plasterboard, but is thinner and softer. On no account should you disturb lagging or insulation board. Removal of asbestos must always be undertaken by specialist contractors.
Asbestos is classed as Hazardous Waste and requires a specialist contractor to collect and dispose of it. Before starting any work, you should seek advice as to how the material can be disposed of and how much it will cost.
If you live in a council property, please see the Asbestos Advice page on the Rykneld Homes website.
Fly Tipped Asbestos
Because asbestos is classed as hazardous, if it is fly tipped on private property you will be advised to hire a private contractor who is licensed to remove such waste - please telephone as soon as possible.
If you see any hazardous waste being fly tipped please report this to us as soon as possible. If the asbestos waste is in a water course or in imminent danger of polluting the water course please contact the Environment Agency.
 
Land
Industrial activity throughout the UK has left us with the legacy of old derelict sites, many with problems of residual contamination. Some of these sites are potentially hazardous to human health, watercourses or other such sensitive receptors.
Legislation formed under Part IIa of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 was introduced in April 2000 to facilitate the identification and remediation of such sites. As part of this legislation, Local Authorities were given the responsibility of developing a strategy for inspecting their areas and identifying potentially harmful sites.
We are responsible for identifying and keeping a register of any contaminated sites in North East Derbyshire, and our Contaminated Land Strategy sets out how we do this. We are currently reviewing the strategy and the new version will be available here when it is completed. 
At present, we don't have a register of contaminated land sites as there are no cases where formal action has been taken in North East Derbyshire that need to be classified as contaminated.
A guide to Submitting Applications For Land That May Be Contaminated (1.7MB) has been produced by the Derbyshire Contaminated Land Sub-Group. The Environment Agency have useful information on contaminated land.
 
Noise
Please visit our main noise web page for more information.
 
Smoke
Parts of North East Derbyshire have been officially designated as smoke control areas, where only authorised fuels may be burned, or other fuels may be burned in exempt appliances.
It is an offence to emit smoke from the chimney of a building in a designated smoke controlled area. It is also an offence to acquire an "unauthorised fuel" for use within a smoke controlled area unless it is in an exempt appliance.
The attached map is an approximate guide for the the North East Derbyshire Smoke Control Areas. For exact clarification, you can also obtain further advice by contacting us on the number below

Water
If you have a problem with your water supply your first point of contact should be your Water Provider. This is likely to be either Severn Trent or Yorkshire Water in our District. 
If you have a problem with a watercourse then please contact the Environment Agency.
 
We are responsible for the day-to-day cleansing requirements of the District and this includes the hand and mechanical sweeping of highways, pavements and public open spaces such as car parks and market squares to remove litter and detritus.
 
Graffiti

We regularly monitor the District for areas that have been affected by graffiti. We have a zero tolerance stance on graffiti and we do everything in our powers to ensure any offenders are dealt with as quickly and sternly as possible.

We aim to remove graffiti on Council buildings within 10 working days of it being reported to us. We aim to remove any racist, obscene or abusive graffiti within 24 hours of it being reported to us. If the graffiti is on property or business premises we will work with the occupier to influence its speedy removal. By agreement we may remove graffiti from private or business properties on a rechargeable basis.

If you see any area that has been defaced by graffiti and wish to report it, please contact the Council. Report it via ‘Do it Online’ on this page.

Litter and Fly Tipping

New littering rules are now in place as of April 2018.

For the first time, local authorities will also be able to apply penalties for littering to vehicle owners if it can be proved litter was thrown from their car – even if it was discarded by somebody else.

So it’s up to you as a vehicle owner to ensure no one discards litter from your vehicle or YOU will receive a fixed penalty

Litter and fly tipping is a blight on our countryside - it is unsightly, unpleasant and dangerous to the public and animals. Always place your litter in a litter bin or take it home.
To report an issue with litter or fly tipping please use our ‘Do it Online’ service.
Anyone dropping litter can be liable to an immediate fixed penalty notice (FPN) of £80 and if you fail to pay this within the statutory 14-days then you may be taken to court where the maximum fine can be £2,500.

Fly tipping is the illegal dumping of waste on public or private land. Fly tipping is a crime that blights our communities, it's unsightly, can be hazardous and can lead to injuries both to the public and wildlife and is costly to remove. We can take legal action against householders whose waste is tipped illegally (whether they know about it or not), which can end up with a fine of up to £50,000 and/or twelve months imprisonment for those found guilty of fly tipping.
 
To help us catch people who fly tip, every time we have an instance we will post a description and pictures of what has been dumped in our countryside and in your local community. If you recognise what has been dumped, be it the wall paper, tiling, the furniture etc, or you know who in the particular area has recently had work done that may have resulted in the fly tipping, then please contact us confidentially so we can catch the culprits.
 
Any information that is supplied to us will be in the strictest of confidence.
 

We cleanse roads, footpaths, car parks and other public areas across the area to keep our district clean and healthy. We are responsible for:

Removing of litter & detritus
Sweeping roads and footpaths
Removing fly tipped waste
Removing dead animals from the highway
Cleansing highway surface water drainage gullies
Emptying litter and dog waste bins

If you are concerned about the condition of a footpath, road or street, please use our ‘Do it Online’ services to report the issue.
