Residents urged to have their say on Council Plan

We are urging North East Derbyshire residents to have their say on our draft Council Plan, which sets out our aims and ambitions for the next four years.

The plan, which runs from 2019-2023, focuses on four main themes: Our Residents, Our Environment, Our Services and Our Economy.

Each theme has a number of priorities we will focus on, to deliver our vision for the District - that North East Derbyshire is clean and attractive, a place where people are proud to live and work, a place where people will prosper and a place where people will feel safe, happy and healthy.

Cllr Martin Thacker MBE, Leader of North East Derbyshire District Council, said: “North East Derbyshire is brimming with history, culture and heritage that we need to protect and embrace.

“It is our responsibility to work with partners, towards a shared aspiration for North East Derbyshire to be the best area and the best Council.

“We value our heritage and all of the District’s key features such as areas of natural beauty and historical interest. That’s why we have put protecting our Green Belt, promoting our tourism assets, encouraging Neighbourhood Plans and reducing our carbon footprint at the heart of our plan.

“It’s vitally important we do all this whilst listening to what our local residents want and responding to their needs.”
