Doveridge update – April 2017

Due to a commercial decision made by Midland Classic bus company, buses will no longer be following a route through the village.

New Bus stops are situated at the top of Bell Lane, Bakers Lane and Sand Lane.

The Parish Council are speaking with the County Council and planning an on site meeting to discuss Bus Shelters and will let you have any information once they know anything further.

Neighbourhood Plan update – March 2017

On Tuesday 7th March Doveridge Neighbourhood Plan, along with the Consultation Document and the Basic Conditions Statement were submitted to Derbyshire Dales District Council.

We are awaiting a timetable from the Council for the next steps which include a six week consultation, scrutiny by an examiner and finally a referendum. At that stage the residents of the Parish of Doveridge will be able to vote and say if they support the adoption of the Plan.

The formulation of a Neighbourhood Plan is a very detailed task and has to be completed according to rules laid down by the government. On the way it has to receive ongoing scrutiny from DDDCouncil, has to be in convergence with their Local Plan and must have been consulted on by the residents within the Parish. The small team of volunteers has worked tirelessly for almost two years to achieve the completion of the three documents necessary for it to go to examination.

Visit our Neighbourhood Plan page and click on “Latest Draft” to view the documents.

New village web pages for Doveridge

Previous Doveridge welcome page
Previous Doveridge welcome page
Did you know that the previous Doveridge web pages (see image shown) were first published over ten years ago in March 2006?

Since that time there have been major changes in the way that people use the web, with mobile phones and tablets now supplanting computers as the principal choice for viewing pages.

In view of this, Doveridge Parish Council recently commissioned a revitalisation of the village pages to adapt them for mobile viewing and to refresh some of the out-of-date style and contents.

The draft of the new pages was demonstrated to the Parish Council at their meeting on Tuesday 13th December 2016, and it was agreed that these new pages be published.

Within the information section of the pages, there are details for many local businesses, organisations and services. Perhaps you could check that any you are connected with are accurately represented and use the feedback form to let us know of any errors or omissions?

Some of the changes

Apart from updating the appearance, other changes to the pages include:

  • Making navigation around the site easier by providing the “Quicklinks” and breadcrumb trail at the top of the pages
  • Replacing the static map of Doveridge with a Google map that can be zoomed and provide satellite and “Streetview” images
  • Enabling easy access to the planning applications on Derbyshire Dales District Council web site
  • Providing a framework that will enable the Parish Council to publish more documents that meet the requirements of the Transparency Code
