Councillor of the Year Award 2018

Councillor of the Year Award 2018

Tue, 09 Oct 2018 15:18 by Carolyn Jennings

The Parish Council is delighted to advise that Cllr Paul Yorke won the first ever Derbyshire Association of Local Councils (DALC) Award for Councillor of the Year 2018!

Wendy Amis,CEO of DALC, said there had been a good number of nominations, and "bringing together three villages within Parish to raise £140,000 to re-open The PLACE – a meeting and play area for all residents – was the undoubted highlight of Paul's nomination." She went on to say that Councillors did a huge amount of good works, often unrecognised, and she hoped the Awards were a good way to raise awareness of outstanding achievement. More »

The Award was presented today at DALC's AGM, Derby County Football Club, Pride Park, Derby.

Cllr Yorke said the Award meant an awful lot to him and he was very grateful to receive it. Cllr Yorke is seen here with Cllr Valerie Broom who nominated him for the Award.

Many congratulations! » Less

Mon, 10 Sep 2018 16:50 by Carolyn Jennings

There was almost unanimous support for the Crich Parish Neighbourhood Plan in the referendum held on 6 September 2018 with a massive 1,094 people going to the polls to vote YES. There were only 29 No voters across the entire Parish. The Neighbourhood Plan will now be used in decision making on planning applications.

The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group that led the production of the Plan on behalf of the Parish Council is delighted with the result and thank everyone that contributed to the Plan and those that supported the Plan in the referendum. More »

The Parish Council feels the very high turnout of local people, which was higher than for any neighbourhood plan in Amber Valley, adds significant weight to the result. The Parish Council greatly appreciates the support of the local community in achieving this wonderful result.
