Be a safe shopper
Shops and markets have started to re-open this week and we’re working with other councils to make changes to town centres to make them safer.
Some roads are being closed or made one way so that we can make pavements wider. We may also be taking out some on-street car parking bays to help with social distancing.
You can do your bit to help keep yourself and others safe too:
Remember where there are signs please follow them. Lets all do our bit to make sure shopping in Derbyshire is as safe as possible.
Nightingale care home welcomes first residents
|Our brand new state-of-the-art Florence Nightingale care home in Belper is ready to welcome its first residents.
Plans to open as a conventional care home to replace the Ada Belfield Care Home have been put on hold – the new home will temporarily be used exclusively for those who need to rest and isolate after suffering with coronavirus.
For now the care home is opening with 10 beds, with the potential to expand to 20. We hope the new home will provide those recuperating from coronavirus a comfortable setting to get back on their feet. Find out more here
Change to our recycling centre rules
Visitors can now bring the full range of household waste usually accepted to our recycling centres.
We’ve dropped the ‘essential waste only’ restriction but residents will still only be allowed in on certain days as we continue to follow social distancing.
Make sure you check the last number on your car registration plate, if it is even you can visit on an even numbered date. If it’s odd you can visit on an odd numbered date.
We’re asking you to wait a little bit longer before bringing vans and trailers. They often take longer to unload and this increases waiting times.
Remember you can check what the queues are like for each site before you travel with live information on our website
Thank you to everyone for your patience and for continuing to follow our golden rules. Find out more here
