Regeneration

  • Regeneration Frameworks Open or Close

    We are looking to shape the future of our District and commissioned a community-led district wide regeneration.

    Led by consultants Bauman Lyons Architects, the work primarily focused on the four towns, but also included the wider settlements and areas of interest such as Creswell Crags. It will help identify the strengths and build upon them, but also look at areas that need improving.

    We have now produced four frameworks for our main towns which include surrounding villages and hamlets:

    • Bolsover (7.04MB) and surrounding villages and hamlets including Bramley Vale, Doe Lea, Scarcliffe, Shuttlewood, Stanfree, Palterton and Glapwell.
    • Clowne (8.36MB) and surrounding villages and hamlets including Barlborough, Creswell, Whitwell and Hodthorpe.
    • Shirebrook (8.8MB) and surrounding villages and hamlets including Pleasley, Pleasley Vale, Langwith-Whaley Thorns and New Houghton.
    • South Normanton (6.79MB) and surrounding villages and hamlets including Pinxton, Blackwell, Hilcote, Newton, Tibshelf and Westhouses.
  • New Bolsover Model Village Open or Close

    A £10million project to breathe new life into New Bolsover Model Village got the go-ahead after the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) agreed to grant £1.9million towards the project.

    The project will carry out essential repairs and restore original architectural features (660kb) on the 194 dwellings that make-up the Model Village. In addition all 138 Council-owned properties will receive internal thermal insulation. 

    The three-year project started in June 2016 and offered a number of training and work experience opportunities for local people. Running alongside the building work will also be an exciting programme of activities designed to engage the community, creating a better understanding of the local heritage and evoking a se  nse of pride in the local area.

  • Coalite Open or Close

    The former Coalite site sits within the districts of both North East Derbyshire District Council and Bolsover District Council.

    A Masterplan for the site has been created by Bolsover Land Ltd, which covers the residential element (based in North East Derbyshire District) and the employment elements (based in Bolsover District).

    For more information about the site, and to keep up to date with its progression, please visit the website www.coalite-regeneration.com

    Our qualified, experienced technicians can carry out a full MOT test or service on private or commercial vehicles. And because they are not in the business of fixing cars you can be sure to get an honest, unbiased test carried out to the highest standards.

  • Parking Open or Close

    We have a total of 37 car parks across the District and they are all free of charge. We feel that by not charging it encourages people to use our town and village centres to do their shopping and undertake their business, which in turn helps the local economy. There are no time restrictions on any of our car parks, but vehicles must park within the marked bays.

    We inspect our car parks four times per year, usually in March, June, September and December, to look for any wear and tear, or to see if any maintainance is required. If you come across a problem at one of our car parks, whether this be a repair, litter, vandalism, graffiti or any other issue please telephone contact us immediately so we can inspect the problem and take the neccessary action as soon as possible.

    Derbyshire County Council, through ParkSmarter are responsibile for enforcing parking restrictions on the streets of the Bolsover District through their Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs). This is known as Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) and they deal with nuisance, illegal and dangerous parking.

    Residential parking permits and the Blue Badge Scheme are administered by Derbyshire County Council.

    We are responsible for providing and maintaining a whole host of street furniture such as bus shelters, street nameplates, seats and benches throughout the District.

    Bus Shelters

    The provision and maintainance of bus shelters across the District is split between ourselves, parish councils and Derbyshire County Council (bus stops that do not have a bus shelter).

    We aim to make sure all our bus shelters are safe, clean and in a proper state of repair. Town Centre shelters are cleaned twice weekly and all other shelters are cleaned weekly, i.e. washed, graffiti removed and swept. We have introduced a Bus Shelter policy (132kb) which explains exactly what we are responsible for.

    All our bus shelters are designated as Smoke Free Public Areas in accordance with The Health Act 2006. The appropriate no-smoking sign complying with the requirements of Section 6 of the above Chapter are displayed in the bus shelters.

    If you want to request a new bus shelter, this must be made to us stating the reasons why a new shelter is required. A new shelter will only be provided if there is a proven demand indicated by the status of the route and its' usage or representations from local residents. It also needs to adhere to the standard specified by Derbyshire County Council's Specification for Pre-fabricated illuminated Bus Shelters (BS 1/05), except in conservation areas where an alternative design may be required.

    Seats

    Roadside seats provide an essential resting places and amenities for the general public. They are routinely inspected for damage, vandalism or repair twice per year, usually in January and July.

    We aim to make sure all our seats and benches are safe, clean and in a proper state of repair. If you find a seat or bench damaged or vandalised, then please contact us immeditaley so we can make sure the necessary repairs are carried out.

    Any requests for new seats should be sent in writing to Engineers Department, Bolsover District Council, the Arc, High Street, Clowne, Derbyshire, S43 4JY. These requests will be assessed on demand, practicality and financial constraint and we will also need to obtain approval from Derbyshire County Council regarding the siting of any new seat.

    Street Naming

    A street nameplate helps to identify a particular road or street and is usually located at the entrance of the highway, either on the side of the road or on a nearby wall. We aim to make sure that all our street nameplates are in a good state of repair and clean from graffiti or vandalism. If you do see a missing or damaged street nameplate please contact us immediately.

Please note that no extra bags or boxes will be taken (unless your bin was missed by our collectors on the previous scheduled collection day). If, due to disability or sickness you, (or no-one else in your property) are unable to present your bin for collection, then you can apply for assistance.

    If your bin was not emptied, please check your bin did not contain any items that it should not have, the lid was fully shut and it was put out to the edge of your property at or before 6am. If this occurs you a notification will be posted through your letter box explaining why your waste has been left and what steps you should take to rectify this.
