A message to Town and Parish Councils from Derbyshire County Council

You may be aware that the Government is expected to release plans for council reorganisation in the coming weeks and, as you would expect, significant work has been taking place in Derbyshire for some time to prepare. More »

We are wholly focused on achieving the best possible results for Derbyshire's people, communities and businesses. It is vital that Derbyshire and the wider East Midlands region does not miss the opportunity to get our fair share of funding and is at the front of the queue for much-needed investment. Staying as we are, in traditional structures, is not an option.

We have been working closely with our district and borough council partners on a new way of working together called Vision Derbyshire. We want this to continue and it is our preferred route to getting a deal with Government. We do, however, need to prepare for every eventuality.

If the Vision Derbyshire approach does not meet the Government's requirements, or all of the councils involved cannot agree to the changes that must happen in terms of governance, then the county council will have to explore the possibility of creating a unitary council to keep the historic county of Derbyshire together. Alongside this, we also intend to be part of a bid to establish an East Midlands Combined Authority to support recovery, resilience and prosperity in the region.

Special Council and Full Council papers to this effect will be released this afternoon on the Derbyshire County Council website. Clearly there is a long way to go before any change takes place and we won't know our direction until after the Government has released more information over the coming weeks.

If we do not act decisively now we will likely miss the once in a generation opportunities before us and may have no say in what happens to our county and how it is governed. We, as local authorities in Derbyshire, need to be masters of our own future for the good of the residents and communities we work alongside.

We will keep you up to date on progress through our website and regular communication channels. » Less

NOTIFICATION OF ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE WORKS - A38 Markeaton Island to Little Eaton Island

Our ref: 569222
Highways England
Stirling House (Area 7),
Lakeside Court,
Osier Drive,
Sherwood Business Park,
Nottingham, NG15 0DS

14 September 2020
Dear Sir or Madam
A38 NB Kedleston Road: essential maintenance between A52 Markeaton Island and A61 Little Eaton Island
At Highways England, we believe in a connected country, and our network makes these connections happen. In the East Midlands, we strive to improve our major roads and motorways, to keep people moving today and better tomorrow.
I'm writing to let you know that we'll be carrying out essential carriageway maintenance work to sections of the A38 northbound carriageway, between the A52 Markeaton Island and the A61 Little Eaton Island. The works include resurfacing parts of the carriageway and the slip roads, refresh road markings and renew road studs. Please be advised that these works fall outside of the wider planned junction improvement works that are still being developed.
To minimise disruption to our customers, we'll work overnight while the road is less busy. This will also ensure that our road network is as free-flowing as possible during the day for supermarket deliveries, delivery of medical supplies, healthcare staff travelling to where they are needed the most, and patients travelling to hospitals without delay.
Once completed, all road users will benefit from improved road safety and a smoother carriageway.
When will the work take place?
Work is due to start on Monday 28 September 2020 and is scheduled for completion by end October 2020.
How will the work affect traffic?
To maintain a safe environment for our workforce and customers, we'll need to close the A38 northbound carriageway, including the exit and entry slip roads overnight from 8pm to 6am Monday to Friday.
During the closures, we'll put in place a diversion route which we've agreed with the Local Authority. The carriageways will remain open outside of our working hours.
Please note that all our planned roadworks may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.
Maintaining safety during Covid-19
We are working hard to maintain the road network and are prioritising critical operational activities. All our sites have strict safeguarding measures, in line with Public Health England guidance, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and none of our sites are open to the public. All construction projects are closely monitored, and the situation is kept under constant review.
