Derbyshire County Council is run by democratically-elected councillors and we are responsible for making decisions on behalf of the local community about local services.
Covering the whole of Derbyshire with the exception of the city of Derby, we work with central government and other tiers of local government – district or borough and parish and town councils – to manage services for the community.
