Devolution Deals To Be Debated At Council

Our Councillors are faced with one of the most important decisions they will ever have to make as they decide which Devolution deal to be part of.

Two Devolution Deals have been tabled – one for the Sheffield City Region and the other for North Midlands - which would devolve powers and responsibilities currently held by the Government in London to a more local level.

Councillors will meet at 10am on Wednesday 2 March 2016 to hear the background and details of the themes within each proposed Devolution Deal and decide which one to become a Constituent membership of and non constituent member of the other.

Both deals will mean local councils working together in a ‘combined authority’ which are groups of local councils in each local area who take control of more services from the Government in exchange for funding. Under Government proposals these authorities would be led by an elected mayor.

The services would include (but not limited to) skills, apprenticeships, housing, planning, transport and business support.

Council Leader Councillor Ann Syrett said, “This is an extremely important decision and one that we will make after debating it and taking into consideration which one provides the best fit and most benefits for our communities.

“This is not a case of the Council losing any of its powers, more a case of us gaining a better control of how our infrastructure is improved, how we can create stronger economies and how we can improve job prospects for our local communities.“Whichever deal we choose, it must be right and will be based upon good sound advice and information and offer the best prospects for the District.”

The Council is being asked to choose between:

  • a devolution deal already agreed with the Government for the Sheffield City Region, which would include an additional £900 million of funding to the city region over 30 years or
  • a potential North Midlands deal, which is in the late stages of discussions ahead of an anticipated agreement from the Government. This deal would see similar powers and in the region of £30 million per year over the next 30 years brought to Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

Update 25 February 2016

(5.30pm)

Services and functions at Bolsover District Council, North East Derbyshire District Council and Rykneld Homes are now back up and operational.

We have been working around the clock, together with their partners, to resolve the issue after work being carried out in Wingerworth resulted in two major cable breaks.

The problem affected all telephone and internet connections, but we put into action our Business Continuity Plans and quickly established telephone lines so customers could contact us in an emergency situation. We implemented solutions to our business operating systems which meant payments to suppliers and business and those with benefit entitlements where paid on time and not disrupted.

We would like to apologise to customers for any inconvenience caused by the disruption to services by this incident, which was outside our control.

 


We are still experiencing problems following a disruption to our telephone and internet connectivity yesterday.

The problem occurred yesterday (24 Feb - approx 2.30pm) after work being undertaken locally in Wingerworth which resulted in two major cable breaks.

We have been working with our partners, including BT, who are on site to try and fully restore all services.

This has affected all services provided by Bolsover District Council, North East Derbyshire District Council and Rykneld Homes that rely on internet connections, including telephones, email, websites and some business operating systems.

We have however managed to make available 8 telephone lines for customers to contact us for emergency situations only. These are as follows:

Bolsover District Council – 01246 242424

North East Derbyshire District Council and Rykneld Homes – 01246 231111
Please also not that the cash machines at our main offices are not working and the cash machines at Bolsover District Council can only accept cash and cheque payments, but not debit or credit cards.

The Planning Public Access systems are currently unavailable at Bolsover District Council and North East Derbyshire District Council.

Council tax, business rates will be collected and benefits will be paid as normal.

Please also note that bin collections will carry on as normal.

Telephone Dialling

The Authority has recently changed our Automated Payment telephone number to comply with Ofcom regulatory changes. The number to dial now is 0300 4560503 and will cost no more to call than a normal geographic number.  This number is available 24 hours a day.

Identify your community’s grot spot!

Following a national clean-up for the Queen’s birthday earlier this month, we are urging local residents to take inspiration from the event by identifying their local grot spots.

We want people to take pride in their community, not just now, but all year round, by identifying which areas have the most litter then get in touch with us to find out how we can support local communities in undertaking local litter picking events. 

As well as loaning equipment, such as high visibility vests, litter picking tongs and rubbish bags, we will also pick up the litter collected. cartoon of children picking up litter

Cabinet Member for the Environment, Councillor Brian Murray-Carr said, “We spend an awful lot of time and effort in making our streets and countryside neat and tidy but we can’t be everywhere at once.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for communities to join together to make our towns and villages cleaner places to live and I’d encourage as many individuals, community groups and organisations as possible to take part.”

A national campaign was launched last year, to clean up Britain in time for the Queen’s 90th birthday on 21 April 2016 and we are hoping residents will carry on this good work by cleaning up their communities - with our help.

Contact our street cleansing team via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or telephone 01246 242424 with information about the clean-up event you are planning, to find out if we can be of assistance.
