Council support for businesses is key to success in the district

North East Derbyshire District Council has pledged its long term support to its businesses, working with them to help them thrive.

The council played an important role in helping businesses who they regulate be compliant and competitive, to help stop any unnecessary costs and burdens on the business, particularly throughout the pandemic and recovery phase.

This friendly advice and support hasn’t gone unnoticed, as a recent survey with food businesses showed glowing feedback for the authority and gratitude for the help and professional manner in which inspectors undertook their visits.

One business owner said, “The inspection was carried out in a very pleasant and professional way. I was given lots of advice and tips which was very helpful”.

North East Derbyshire District Council Cabinet Member for Environmental Health, Cllr Charlotte Cupit said, “We aren’t just about enforcement and being a hard hitting service. We are when we need to be, but the headline of prosecutions, fixed penalty notices and enforcement campaigns only tell part of the story”.

“We work closely with the vast majority of businesses in the district, helping them with regulatory advice and support and guidance so they can thrive and our help is there when needed”.

“This support means our residents and communities who visit these premises can enjoy great quality food and drinks, of which we have many fantastic eateries and café’s to enjoy”.
