We have committed ourselves to revitalise neighbourhoods and to work with local people to tackle the issues that matter to them on their doorstep. The move to an area-based management approach, with a renewed neighbourhood focus at operational level will build on the success of the previous neighbourhood management model. This approach aims to improve outcomes for local people on local issues and enhance the support for local councillors. Neighbourhood working will tackle Issues that adversely impact on people’s quality of life. The introduction of neighbourhood officers to engage with local residents will aim to improve the environment where they live and build pride within our communities. Each of the 4 areas of the city will have a neighbourhood manager to support and co-ordinate the neighbourhood officers and to look for ways of improving services to neighbourhoods across the city.
A Neighbourhood Charter for each ward will set out local priorities and service standards that local people can expect to be delivered.
A City Neighbourhood Board including Police and Fire Services and other partners will co-ordinate our efforts and focus resources in areas of most need. The City and Neighbourhood Board will provide an intelligence-led approach for neighbourhood services to tackle problems in a strategic and co-ordinated way.

Neighbourhood Forums are open public meetings for all local residents, community organisations and businesses, chaired by a local ward councillor. They are an important part of neighbourhood working in Derby.
Every electoral ward in Derby has at least one Neighbourhood Forum held at a local venue every two or three months. The forum is your opportunity to find out what’s happening in your neighbourhood - the problems and the successes - and to discuss the big issues and priorities. You’ll have the chance to talk to your councillors, local police and other providers of services and have a say about what your priorities are for your neighbourhood.

Your Neighbourhood Board is the main leadership group for the neighbourhood. We realise that not everyone wants to get involved - many people just want to know what’s happening and where to go with a problem. However, some people want to get really involved in their neighbourhood as community leaders, working alongside their councillors and local services.
Your Neighbourhood Board leads on behalf of the neighbourhood as a whole. The Board agrees the priorities for the neighbourhood, decides where delegated Council budgets are to be spent, monitors performance, influences decisions that reflect the views of local residents, and decides on the vision for your neighbourhood.
There is a Ward Committee for each electoral ward and comprises the three Ward Councillors elected for the ward.
The committee authorises the use of the budget delegated by the Council to the Neighbourhood Board.

Neighbourhood Boards are made up of local councillors, residents and representatives from community organisations and public services.
Board representatives are reviewed each year. Local people who are committed and have a real understanding about their community’s hopes and priorities are encouraged to join their Board.

Community organisations can apply for funding from their local Neighbourhood Board to support the board to address local priorities.
