EBC 2021-22 Budget Consultation Survey

In common with previous financial years, Erewash Borough Council will have to make significant savings to balance its 2021-22 revenue budget because of further reductions in central government grant funding. The council continues to strive to maintain front line services whilst identifying on-going efficiency savings.

Last year residents were asked about which services they felt were most or least important to them and the council would like to repeat the exercise for the coming year to see if any changes or trends in opinions can be highlighted. The council appreciates that it can be difficult to identify which services are most and least important as all can be important to some degree. By monitoring opinions over a period of years we hope to help inform the priority-setting agenda for the council.

***The survey again offers the opportunity (Q3) to provide comments about the council budget or suggestions on how the council could increase income, reduce costs or make savings to support the budget.***

Please complete the short survey by no later than 11:55pm Sunday 31 January 2021.

EBC Tracker Survey

The survey asks general questions about Erewash Borough Council and the services it provides. The same questions are used on a regular (quarterly) basis to allow the council to monitor and compare its performance over time.

2020 Brackley Gate & Moor Lane Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) Consultation - Survey Now Closed. 

Erewash Borough Council has been made aware of anti-social behaviour that is occurring in the area around the lane known as Brackley Gate, Morley and Moor Lane, Little Eaton. The behaviour that has been reported has been ongoing for more than three years and has included:

  • Motorised vehicles using the lane in an anti-social manner.
  • Motorised vehicles using the lane to access private land to drive off-road vehicles including motorbikes and quad bikes in anti-social manner causing damage, noise and disturbance to the local area, residents and users of the lane.
  • Motorised vehicles using the lane to fly-tip waste onto private land, with significant costs incurred by land owners to clear this. 

Erewash Borough Council proposed making a Public Spaces Protection Order under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime & Policing Act 2014 to restrict all vehicular access to the lane to prevent the anti-social behaviour from occurring. The council believes that it has sufficient evidence to show how this behaviour is having an ongoing, detrimental impact on those who live in or visit the locality. 

If the Order is approved, the council will ensure vehicular access is given to organisations and land owners who need to enter the restricted area. This will include emergency services, Severn Trent Water, who have works in the area, and the owners of land that border the restricted area.

Under the Act, the council is required to consult with those who live in or use the area, those who own the land near the restricted area and other interested parties or statutory bodies. The consultation has to show the details of the Order and ensure that there is no other solution to deal with the behaviour reported, or that the closure of the area to vehicles will not have a detrimental impact itself.

Any questions or comments you may have can be submitted to EBC's Community Safety Team. 

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.

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.

The most recent consultation regarding the project proposals closed on 23 November 2020 and a summary of the findings were reported to the Long Eaton Town Board meeting held on Friday 27 November 2020.

2020 Public Space Protection Order Consultation - Survey now Closed. 

The council currently has a Designated Public Place Order to help to deal with anti-social behaviour which is caused by alcohol consumption. The current order will expire in October 2020.

The council wants to introduce a new Order to be able to continue to tackle alcohol consumption in public spaces when the individual is behaving anti-socially. It is likely the Order would cover both Ilkeston and Long Eaton town centres as this is where the majority of incidents occur.

As part of the process to put the new Order in place, local residents and partners were asked about the council's plans via a short survey during July 2020. The survey findings will be included in a report which will be considered at the September 2020 Council Executive meeting.

Larklands Play Area Improvement Project Survey

Erewash Borough Council would like to improve Larklands Play Area in Ilkeston (situated off Heathfield Avenue) because the existing play equipment needs replacing as it has limited play value.

In order to improve the play equipment, EBC needs to apply for external funding and the application has a greater chance of success if the council can demonstrate it has carried out public consultation and provide evidence showing support for the proposal for a new facility.

The survey was conducted during December 2019 and is now closed.

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.

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 on the Have Your Say section of its website where you can read about the purpose of each consultation, find out who is being consulted and how to get involved.
