Local Authorities

Derbyshire County Council – the county of Derbyshire forms the north-west part of the East Midlands and covers an area of 255,071 hectares and at mid-2007 had a population of 758,150 people. We are run by democratically-elected councillors and we are responsible for making decisions on behalf of the local community about local services.

Covering the whole of Derbyshire with the exception of the city of Derby, we work with a second tier of local government – district or borough councils – to manage services for the community.

We prepare for and deal with a range of emergencies such as floods, chemical leaks and gas explosions through to comparatively minor incidents. We co-ordinate the planning, training and exercises of many agencies who have a role to play in an emergency to ensure that there is a co-ordinated and efficient response.

Derby City Council
Derby is a safe, compact city with a clearly-defined centre and distinct, cosmopolitan neighbourhoods. With an internationally recognised industrial heritage and now one of the world’s leading aerospace cities, it has a strong identity and yet is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The city itself includes over 800 hectares of municipal parks and the river Derwent flows right through the centre. For more information about the city see Derby Does It.

The city’s vision is set out in the Derby Plan.

We are responsible for the maintenance of the public roads and footpaths in Derby which includes the winter maintenance service. The weather forecast is checked at least once a day throughout winter so we can judge whether to send our gritting vehicles out to grit the roads.

Through our Derby Home Energy Advice Service you can get information advice about how to:

  • save energy

  • keep warm.

We can also give you advice on the latest home energy grants and discount schemes.
