Our website is our main means of communication, so we have decided to remove our corporate Facebook account to drive more people to visit our website to get their information.
It’s not a case of removing a way people can get information about us, we are just changing the way people access it. We don’t advertise on Facebook and the information we post is all on our website so we are simply reducing duplication and allocating our resources more strategically so we can concentrate on making the website a better and easier experience for the end user and explore other ways of communicating with our communities.
We want to make the website a hub where people can go and get all the information about us as well as their community and we will be refreshing and revamping our site over the coming months.
If you have contacted us via Facebook, you can still do this through the Do It Online section of our website.

Our Environmental Enforcement Team have seized a stray dog in Whitwell today (30 May). It did not have a collar or tag but has been chipped, although we believe it is not up to date. We have taken him to the kennels where it will be looked after.
We have resolved to approve plans for the redevelopment of the Sherwood Lodge site in Bolsover, subject to conditions.
The three-hectare site has been vacant for over four years and the proposed redevelopment will see physical regeneration of this key landmark site in Bolsover’s town centre with the introduction of a new foodstore, retail terrace and additional car parking.
The proposals are expected to create around 200 jobs as well as reducing the need to travel elsewhere to shop by bringing more shopping choice for the residents and visitors to the town.
The Council’s Deputy Leader, Councillor Duncan Mcgregor said, “A balanced decision had to be taken with regard to the wider public benefits. The deteriorating condition of the site has resulted in a negative impact of the town and redevelopment will bring about significant benefits for our residents and the town.
“There are conditions which need to be met by the developers and we are working with them to find the best solution for all parties.”
