Reporting matters to Derbyshire Police

Lately there has been a slight increase in matters adversely impacting upon the community. To ignore it and hope that ‘someone else’ will deal with it only frustrates any response we can expect.

Generally any Police response to matters occurring in the village will only happen IF THEY KNOW ABOUT IT.

We don’t really have the right to moan about Police response if we haven’t told them!

Many may not realise the different ways of reporting matters, so the following is a useful guide of how, and what, to report:

1.       Traffic Matters. Incidents of speeding, reckless, dangerous etc matters can be reported via this link. It is fairly straightforward and has been used to report speeding matters through the village along Derby Road.

2.       Crime Reporting: To report crime that have occurred, use the following link

NOTE:  If the crime is occurring at the time and is of an urgent matter (domestic violence, burglary in action, assault in action, theft in action etc) call 999

3.       Incident Reporting: To report an incident or pass information, use the following link

NOTE: This method will ask for your details. If you are concerned re this see Crimestoppers below.

4.       Crimestoppers: Can be used to provide anonymous information that will be subsequently passed to Police.

It is hoped that the community will have the confidence to use any of the above appropriate reporting methods about matters concerning the village and or wider community.

Don’t forget. If its an emergency 999

Alternatively you can report matters using 101

Finally this link will direct you to a web page which has various methods of contacting Derbyshire Police.

Below is a link to the official letter we have received from Derbyshire Dales District Council informing us of the date of the Referendum in respect of the Doveridge Neighbourhood Plan.

Letter of Confirmation for Referendum

and below is the Notice of Referendum


Entry last updated on 8 May 2018


The Examiner has now passed our Neighbourhood Plan with agreed modifications. The Plan will now go forward to Referendum when the DDDC have completed the amendments. At Referendum the whole village will be invited to vote. We need at least 50% of those who vote to agree to adopt the Plan and it then becomes a statutory document intended to map the future of the village until 2033.

It has taken the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group over two years’ work to get to this stage and also involved the whole village in Questionnaires, Housing Needs Surveys etc. We will be at the forefront of towns and villages in DDDC to have an adopted Plan.
