EBC Quarterly Tracker Survey - Now Open

Here is the third quarterly Tracker Survey of 2022-23 and it again asks general questions about Erewash Borough Council services and communications. By using the same questions on a regular basis the council is able to track its performance over time and assess if any changes it has made have had any impact on resident's views on its service areas. 

Please take a few moments to complete the survey here before 11.55pm Thursday 22 December 2022.

These surveys ask general questions about Erewash Borough Council, 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.

During 2022-23 EBC's Tracker Survey will again be available for completion here in the following months:

  • February and March 2023.

East Midlands Devolution Public Consultation.

Derbyshire County Council, Nottinghamshire County Council, Derby City Council and Nottingham City Council have agreed to a £1.14 billion devolution deal by the government.

The deal would create the first ever Combined County Authority and would see an extra £38 million a year coming to the East Midlands from 2024, addressing years of historically low investment in our area.

It would mean funding and powers move from a national level to a regional level to help the 2.2 million people who live here. For more information about what is devolution and what it would mean for the area is please visit the East Midlands Devolution website.  

The vision is for the people who live and work here to be better connected, more competitive, and more prosperous within an inclusive Combined County Authority area at the heart of the country.  

The shared objectives are about:

  • Boosting productivity, pay, jobs and living standards
  • Spreading opportunities and improving public services
  • Restoring a sense of community, local pride and belonging
  • Empowering local leaders and communities

The creation of an East Midlands County Combined Authority would deliver this vision through economic growth, productivity, and personal wellbeing for the 2.2 million people who live and work here. 

Public consultation is taking place and residents, businesses, voluntary and community sector and other stakeholders are encouraged to have their say. To take part please complete this survey before the closing date of 9 January 2023.

EBC Member Code of Conduct Survey - Now Closed. 

The Local Government Association (LGA) created a Model Councillor Code of Conduct in response to a recommendation made by the Committee on Standards in Public Life in their report entitled Review of Local Government Ethical Standards. The Model Councillor Code of Conduct aims to be concise, written in plain English, be understandable to members, officers and the public and is designed to:

  • Aid members in all tiers of local government to model the behaviours and high standards that anyone would expect from a person holding public office.
  • Articulate behaviour which falls below the standards that would be expected of council members.
  • Help set a framework for public and councillor interaction, emphasising the importance of respect and that councillors and the public should be protected from bullying, intimidation and abuse.

EBC is considering adopting the LGA's Model Councillor Code of Conduct as its own Member Code of Conduct and would like to hear the thoughts of the public.

The 12 week period of consultation  closed on Monday 28 November 2022, for more information about this consultation please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) Consultation - Brackley Gate and Moor Lane - Now Closed

In February 2021 Erewash Borough Council's Council Executive approved the making of a PSPO as permitted under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime & Policing Act 2014 in an effort to deal with the anti-social behaviour that was being reported in the area around the lane known as Brackley Gate, Morley and Moor Lane, Little Eaton. The behaviour that was being reported had been ongoing for a number of years and included motorised vehicles using the lane in an anti-social manner, accessing other land from the lane to cause anti-social behaviour and fly-tipping.

The Order was made in August 2021 and allowed EBC to install locked gates at each end of the lane, restricting access to the area for motorised vehicles.  The gates ensured that access was retained for those on foot, horses or pedal cycles, as well as authorised access for a number of interested parties including emergency services and those with land or property that borders the Restricted Area. Further information on the Order, including the Alternative Routes, is available on the council's website.  

The Council has received a request from national organisations asking for permissions for their members to have vehicular access to the lane for recreational purposes (including ‘green-laning’). Any access would be subject to the individual signing up to certain conditions and access could be restricted should complaints be received regarding the behaviour of those accessing the lane. 

The purpose of this consultation was to establish the public's views on Erewash Borough Council's proposal to grant access through an amended PSPO. For more information about the survey and its findings please contact EBC's Community Safety Team on 0115 907 2244 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

EBC 2023-24 Budget Consultation - Now Closed

In common with previous financial years, Erewash Borough Council will have to make significant savings to balance its 2023-24 revenue budget as the council continues to strive to maintain front line services whilst identifying on-going efficiency savings. Residents were asked to complete a survey, which closed on 31 October 2022, and identify which services are the most and least important to them. The survey findings will be used to help inform the priority-setting agenda for the council.  

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 where you can read about the purpose of each consultation, find out who is being consulted and how to get involved.
