This is a summary of the Council pledges which support our vision for an ambitious Derby – where we support our children and young people to achieve their full potential, skills are valued, jobs and businesses are growing and we have the infrastructure to create a city for the future.
People have told us that while they appreciate the range of shopping on offer, they want our city centre to be more attractive, with a bettering offering at night. They would also like Derby to have better sports and leisure facilities.

A key focus for the Council is to create the right conditions for Derby’s economy to thrive.
We will work with the business community and other partners to enable companies to invest and grow, creating at least 2,000 more employment opportunities over the next two years.
The A52 is one of the main routes into Derby and can be heavily congested. The Council will undertake a £15m scheme to improve the Wyvern junction and build a new 80-metre footbridge for pedestrians and cyclists.
When the project is fully completed by Spring 2019, motorists will spend less time queuing on the A52.
