Our Commitment

North East Derbyshire District Council (NEDDC) is committed to the challenge of tackling climate change and reducing our carbon emissions.

As a District Council, we sit in a local government tiered system with Derbyshire County Council covering the whole of Derbyshire, NEDDC covering the district, and Parish and Town Councils at a community level, and each being responsible for a range of statutory and other services.

NEDDC’s responsibilities include Bins and Recycling, Council Tax and Benefits, Elections and Voting, Environment and Environmental Health, Housing Support and Homelessness, Leisure, Licensing, Planning, Streetscene, and through Rykneld Homes Ltd, the Council’s housing stock.

As an organisation we are striving to make better use of our resources, finding more efficient and cost effective ways of delivering our services and carrying out our activities, leading by example and educating ourselves and others so that collectively we can make a difference across the District by developing a lower carbon lifestyle.

By working together with partners and our local communities we can play our part in achieving the UK’s 2050 net zero greenhouse gas emissions target.

On the Climate Change pages you will find information and links to some of the activities and initiatives we are involved with as well as other resources to help you identify ways to make simple changes to lower your carbon footprint and save money.
