EBC Quarterly Tracker Survey - Now Closed

These surveys ask general questions about Erewash Borough Council and the services it provides and their methods of communication. The same questions are used on a regular (quarterly) basis to allow the council to monitor and compare its performance over time.

EBC's quarterly Tracker Surveys will be available here during the following months in 2021-22:

  • Q3 Survey November and December 2021;

  • Q4 Survey February and March 2022.

Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Crime Plan Priority Survey

Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Angelique Foster is inviting people to help set the policing agenda in Derby and Derbyshire by taking part in a new survey.

Building on feedback received during her election campaign Commissioner Foster has launched a consultation to inform her Police and Crime Plan and shape the way Derby City and the County are policed in the future.

The survey will determine which areas of policing warrant the most attention in the eyes of the public by asking respondents if they have been a victim of crime in the past 12 months and whether they agree with the initial six priorities outlined by Commissioner Foster:

  • Strong local policing;
  • Neighbourhood crime and antisocial behaviour;
  • Rural crime;
  • Road safety;
  • Victim support and safeguarding;
  • Driving efficiencies.

Respondents are also provided with the opportunity to suggest other priorities they think should be included. 

The consultation is taking place now and more information is available on the Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner website.  

2021 Larklands Play Area Consultation - Now Closed

Erewash Borough Council has been successful with an external funding bid for £70,000, which will enable the refurbishment of Larklands Play Area, Heathfield Avenue, Ilkeston. The council is also contributing to the project. The external funding has come from FCC Communities Foundation, which is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community projects through the Landfill Communities Fund. The bid for funding was supported by Ilkeston Parents for Play and Kensington Junior Academy in Ilkeston.

The project will see a range of exciting new play equipment installed, as well as safety surfacing and fencing. The play area will be fully accessible and will cater for a wide age range and installation and completion of the new play equipment is scheduled for late 2021. 

A tender and selection process has been undertaken which has left EBC with two design options. During August 2021 the council asked residents which of the two design options they preferred, with the most popular option taken forward.

Long Eaton Towns Fund Consultation - Survey Now Closed

Long Eaton is writing a Town Investment Plan in an attempt to secure £25 million of mainly capital funding to improve the town. Part of the money will be spent on increasing footfall in the town centre and making Long Eaton an even more vibrant and pleasant place to live, work and visit.

Following an initial consultation during the summer, where the Board asked what investments the community would like to see in Long Eaton, it is now seeking feedback on a number of suggested projects.

Long Eaton communities are asked to consider and provide feedback on these projects which will then be used to develop the final Town Investment Plan for submission to central government.

Consultation findings regarding the project proposals were reported to the Long Eaton Town Board meeting held in November 2020. 

Dates of future Town Board Board meetings and more information about the Board and the project proposals can be found on the Long Eaton Towns Fund Board website (opens in a new window)

Derbyshire County Council

Derbyshire County Council (DCC) is committed to listening and learning from local people and provide important services to residents, visitors, employers and employees in the county and are always looking for ways to improve them.

Finding out what people think of the services DCC provide is essential because it helps the council to work out how to improve them and their commitment to consult ensures this will happen. Consultation is the process of informed communication between DCC and the users of their services prior to the council making a policy decision or determining changes to service delivery.

Details about current DCC consultations carried out in the past and those planned for the future can be found at Derbyshire County Council Have Your Say (opens in a new window) where you can read about the purpose of each consultation, find out who is being consulted and how to get involved.
