Why are we consulting?
On 29 April the Domestic Abuse Bill was signed into law.  The Domestic Abuse Act will provide further protections to the millions of people who experience domestic abuse and strengthen measures to tackle perpetrators.  

In response to the Act, the City and County Councils are undertaking this survey to determine the level of need for support for those affected by domestic abuse and the responses we need to put in place.

The Act defines a wide-ranging legal definition of domestic abuse which incorporates a range of abuses beyond physical violence, including emotional, coercive or controlling behaviour, and economic abuse.  

The measures include important new protections and support for victims ensuring that abusers will no longer be allowed to directly cross-examine their victims in the family and civil courts, and giving victims better access to special measures in the courtroom to help prevent intimidation – such as protective screens and giving evidence via video link.

It is important that we gain the views and experiences of our residents to inform the assessment and development of our strategies. We are keen to hear from people across the city and county, to enable us to build a better picture of peoples understanding of domestic abuse and the support that is needed to protect victims.

We would like people's views on Domestic Abuse even if you or someone you know hasn’t been directly affected.

Who are we consulting?
All residents of Derby and Derbyshire, those with lived experience of domestic abuse, those with expertise in working with victims / survivors, those involved in preventative activity, in providing services and, more generally, the communities and organisations affected by this crime. This includes relevant professionals, such as those working in social care, education, law enforcement, local government, public health and healthcare..

Sport England produced a report for Derby City Council showing that by 2028, much of the city’s existing swimming pool stock would reach the end of its active life without significant investment. This included Queen’s Leisure Centre, which, by then, would be 96 years old.

In 2017, essential maintenance works were undertaken to extend the life of the centre by up to five years, to 2022.

At the same time, work has been underway on the design and build of a new 50m swimming pool, learner pool and water park at Moorways Sports Village, due to open to customers in spring 2022.

Why are we consulting?

With the opening of these new facilities along with other factors, including:

  • the age and design of Queen's Leisure Centre is not suitable for modern leisure use  
  • the significant cost of repairs and maintenance required to maintain the facilities and bring all three pool halls back into use as well as the cost of large-scale refurbishment to keep the facility open in the long-term.
  • that for the foreseeable future the teaching pool, changing rooms and the gym remain closed due to ongoing maintenance issues
  • the current ongoing budgeted annual operating subsidy of £551,825.

The Council is proposing to cease operating the leisure provision at Queen’s Leisure Centre when Moorways Sports Village opens in spring 2022.

Who are we consulting?

All those who live and work in Derby, and the wider community, users of Queen’s Leisure Centre, clubs and groups, partner organisations, and businesses.

Why are we consulting?

Derby City Council has been awarded £776,150 of funding from the Department for Transport to deliver additional active travel measures across the city. As part of this work a number of schools have been identified across the city to test different interventions.

We're working to improve street safety in 8 locations around city schools, through transport measures and promoting active travel choices.

We have developed some proposals to introduce experimental road changes around these schools and would like your feedback. These proposals are designed to address some of the long-standing parking issues that occur at the start and end of the school day as well as promoting active travel for trips to schools and reducing school gate traffic. It is intended that these proposals also build on the measures that have been introduced in the past.

The school locations/consultations are:

We have already consulted with parents/carers, local residents and road users about Springfield Primary, St Werburgh's Primary and West Park in Spondon. Thank you to everyone who gave their feedback. We’ll update you on the outcome of the consultation in the next couple of months.

We would appreciate your feedback on the proposals outlined to help us determine the next steps. Please look at our FAQs and complete our short survey(s).

Who are we consulting?

Parents/carers, local residents and residents of Derby.
