Street Names for the Bakers Lane/Derby Road Site

The Parish Council has been asked for its thoughts on the following street names for the new site on Bakers Lane/Derby Road which have been suggested by the developer;

  • St Cuthberts – after St Cuthberts Church
  • Berta – after Bertha l’Aigle wife of Henry de Ferrers and mother to Robert, 1st Earl of Derby.

These would be followed by the suffix (e.g. Close etc).

Recruitment of Electoral Registration Canvassers 2018

Derbyshire Dales District Council will begin the annual canvass of households on 1 August and are currently looking to recruit additional canvassers to cover as much of the area as possible.  They hope to hold a couple of “drop-in” sessions (in north and south of District + Matlock) where anyone who is interested can come along to find out exactly what the role entails.  That would be followed by a more formal recruitment process. 

The attached notice explains the type of person they are looking for and invites those interested to contact them so that they can arrange the informal meetings.

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.
