Local Plan Consultation on Main Modifications

At the beginning of November, the District Council launched a consultation process on the Main Modifications proposed on the North East Derbyshire Local Plan. The Local Plan, amongst other things, says where houses will be built within Dronfield over the coming years.

We need lots of residents to comment on this draft to give us the best chance to convince the independent Inspector, about how to improve the Local Plan further, with particular reference to retaining the greenbelt around the town.

Please click on the document below of Frequently Asked Questions and suggested key arguments to include.

The deadline for comments to be submitted has now been extended to 31st January 2021.

Office staff are continuing to work during this time and are still contactable by phone on 01246 418573, email via townclerk@dronfield.gov.uk or through the Town Council website, although the council office remains closed to members of the public.

Town Council Facilities

Following the Government announcement that Dronfield will be in Tier Four, the Town Council is able to keep open some of its facilities and venues for permitted events only, which are eligible.

Bookings are now being taken again for the Civic Hall and Gosforth Lodge but only for groups permitted to continue under the Government Guidance, such as support groups, voluntary groups and activities for under 18 year olds.

Bookings for the MUGA pitch at Cliffe Park have closed again, as people are only permitted to meet with one other person outside their household in tier four, which means teams are now unable to meet to play. Our parks and play areas remain open for residents to use for exercise.

The Town Council urges any local residents using the parks and venues to adhere to social distancing and continue to wash hands thoroughly after being in these areas and to try and not touch your face.

Please stay safe and help keep each other safe by respecting the measures that have been put in place.

Census Day 2021

Census Day 2021

Posted: Wed, 06 Jan 2021 11:53 by Loran Stonehouse

March 21st, 2021 will be UK Census Day!

You will soon receive information on taking part in the 2021 UK Census.

The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941. More »

It will be the first run predominantly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code, allowing them to complete the questionnaire on their computers, phones or tablets. Those residents who are unable to complete the Census digitally will be supported by a phone helpline, a network of Census Support Centres or by ordering a paper Census.

Census day will be on 21 March 2021, but households across the country will receive letters with online codes allowing them to take part from early March.

The census will include questions about your sex, age, work, health, education, household size and ethnicity. And, for the first time, there will be a question asking people whether they have served in the armed forces, as well as voluntary questions for those aged 16 and over on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Initial results will be available within 12 months, although personal records will be locked away for 100 years, kept safe for future generations. Residents can be assured that the Census form is completely confidential and personal data is not shared until the Census is opened up 100 years later. On that subject Census 1921 will be available for research early in 2021
