Equality Objectives

From April the Equality Act 2010 introduced the Public Sector Equality Duty to ensure that public bodies consider how different people will be affected by their activities and help them to deliver policies and services which are accessible to all.

All public bodies subject to the general duty should consider issues affecting people sharing each of the "protected characteristics" and the three aims of the equality duty:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under this Act;
  • Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it;
  • Foster good relations between persons who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it

The Equality Duty is supported by the specific duties which require public bodies to:

  • publish relevant, proportionate information, demonstrating compliance with the Equality Duty,
  • set themselves specific, measurable Corporate Equality Objectives.

Four new Corporate Equality Objectives were agreed in April 2016.

  • Provide a welcoming and safe place for our communities, visitors and businesses which embraces equality and is free from discrimination.
  • Provide relevant services that are free from discrimination and delivered in a way that is responsive and accessible.
  • Understand and value the diversity of our communities through community engagement
  • Foster an accessible and inclusive working environment for all our staff and strive to achieve a workforce that is representative and diverse.

Underpinning the Equality Objectives we intend to deliver equality actions that demonstrate our progress in meeting the aims of the General Duty.   Feedback from staff, the on-line panel and consultation with the Youth Forum and local community groups helped devise our four year action plan.

Erewash Borough Council is a Level 2 Disability Confident Employer.

What you told us

The consultation we undertook identified issues that showed what made people feel welcome and safe in the borough.  Some issues do not relate directly to services provided by Erewash Borough Council but we wanted to provide feedback on some of the issues residents raised.

Grit bins – Derbyshire County Council have more than 800 grit bins in the county but are not able to provide new ones.  Over 1,200 grit bins are provided by town and parish councils.  If residents feel that additional bins are needed where they live they may wish to raise the matter with their parish council

Street lighting – Street lighting is provided by Derbyshire County Council and lights that need repairing can be reported via their website http://www.derbyshire.gov.uk/New lighting is only installed on existing roads where there's a night-time casualty record, evidence of high levels of night time antisocial behaviour or where justified as part of other measures to improve road safety.  (Information from DCC’s website).  Erewash Borough Council provides lighting in car parks and other public places.

Motorcycles etc. on tow paths - A spokesperson for the Canal and River Trust, East Midlands has said, “We do from time to time have motorbikes on our towpaths and we do the best that we can to prevent this by installing barriers to limit access and working with the Police to identify those responsible. We have only had a few reports of late and so we believe these measures are working most of the time”.  If there are any ongoing/future issues they can be reported by email to: This email address is being protected from spambots.
