Have your say on 20mph speed limits

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 11:10 by Jackie Clements

Derbyshire County Council is looking for local people's views on 20mph speed limits on residential streets and Duffield Parish Council would like to encourage local residents to take part.

The consultation is online and closes on 30 September 2015. More »

In the survey residents are asked if they support or oppose 20mph speed limits, and if they think they make residential areas safer, reduce pollution and noise and make areas better places to live.

The review is only looking at 20mph speed limits on residential roads that are not on major through routes and that don't have speed humps. Derbyshire County Council would carry out further consultation before any revised speed limits were introduced. » Less

Enter our competition to name the Eyes Meadow changing rooms!

Work is now underway to refurbish the sports changing rooms on Eyes Meadow.

Once work is complete, Duffield Parish Council wants to name the new changing room block – and that's where you come in. More »

We're looking for imaginative suggestions for the name – there's a £25 prize up for grabs and the winning name will be set in stone for years to come!

The new name might honour a well-known person who's contributed to sport nationally and who has played sport in the village; or someone who has contributed to local life in some other way. Or come up with something entirely new – maybe it's an anagram, word play or something else unique to Duffield or Eyes Meadow.

To enter, all you need to do is send your suggestion for the name to the Parish Council – answers can be sent via the Parish Council's Facebook page, by email to clerk@duffieldparishcouncil.gov.uk or sent to the Parish Council's office at the Weston Centre, Tamworth St, Duffield DE56 4ER. Simply let us know your contact details, your suggestion, and a sentence or two to let us know why you've chosen that name.

The competition is open to all, and closes September 30th 2015. The new name will be revealed at the official opening of the refurbished changing rooms on the 6th November 2015.

Vaughandale Construction are set to complete the work to the changing room block by the end of September – after which there will be four new changing rooms (two of which will convert to a multi-use space that can be used for education classes and other small meetings), unisex and disabled toilets for use by spectators and a kitchenette with hatch to the outside. » Less
