#OurDay 2017

Your District Council took part in the annual #OurDay tweetathon on 21 November, showcasing the things we do to improve the quality of life for Derbyshire Dales residents.

From cleaning public loos, sweeping streets, emptying bins and running leisure centres to installing CCTV cameras, organising health walks and markets and keeping our parks and play areas looking great... it's all in a day's work for our teams.

At our Town Hall HQ during a single day we took over 400 phone calls, greeted more than 60 visitors and answered over 100 emails, including 5 Freedom of Information requests, plus we dealt with 5 licences for the sale of alcohol, 4 for animal boarding, 3 for pet shops and 3 horse for riding establishment licence renewals. Then there were 5 taxi drivers’ vehicle licence renewals.

And our waste & recycling teams were on the road from 6.45am, visiting 6,800 Dales homes.

We posted around 90 Tweets during the day, and here they are:

Doveridge Neighbourhood Development Plan survey

Residents of Doveridge are being invited to have their say on a draft Neighbourhood Development Plan that has been prepared for the parish.

This plan proposal has now been formally submitted to Derbyshire Dales District Council. If eventually approved, it will become part of the statutory planning framework for the area and used by the District Council to decide planning applications in the parish.

Every household in the village is receiving a letter with additional information and a link to this online survey - open from today (30 October) to 11 December.

The Draft Neighbourhood Development Plan and supporting documents can be inspected at the Town Hall in Matlock and also at Doveridge Village Stores and Post Office, The Doveridge Club, The Cavendish Arms in the village and Doveridge Primary School.

The survey asks respondents if they support, support with changes or oppose elements of the draft plan. Responses, together with any accompanying comments, will be made publicly available and will be forwarded to the Examiner at the next stage of Neighbourhood Plan development.
