The Area Community Forums are an opportunity for members of the public, representatives from community groups and the voluntary & business sector to meet with officers and Councillors from the District Council and partner organisations such as the Peak District National Park Authority.
The Forums are held twice a year in three different public venues each time. The format is usually for a couple of presentations on current topics or consultations as well as regular agenda items including ‘Good News’ and there is always opportunity to make comments, raise queries and ask questions on the presentations as well as at the popular Question Time session.
The Forums usually last about one and half to two hours – everyone is welcome to attend and whilst we enjoy seeing our regulars, we also look forward to some new faces.
The next round of Forums are:-
- Monday 4th February 2019, 7 pm – Town Hall, Matlock, DE4 3NN View this meeting below
- Tuesday 12 February 2019, 7 pm – Hulland Ward & District Millenium Village Hall, Hulland Ward, DE6 3EA
- Tuesday 26 February 2019, 7 pm - Agricultural Business Centre, Bakewell, DE45 1AH
As well as the popular standard items of Good News and Question Time, Derbyshire Dales’ residents will get an overview of the District Council’s spending plans for 2019/20. The Forums will also feature an update on the procurement of a new waste and recycling contract, plus information about standing as a candidate at the District and Parish Council elections on 2 May this year.

February 2017 Forums
The February round of Area Community Forums were staged by the District Council in Darley Dale, Hulland Ward and Ashford-in-the-Water and featured an update on Council Tax and savings - and what the District Council’s share of local Council Tax was likely to be from April.
A busy agenda also included an update on the process to outsource the running of the District Council's four leisure centres as a package to a management operator, together with a bus service update from Derbyshire County Council.
