We continue to administer the Better Derbyshire Dales Fund here at the CVS. The grant-scheme makes awards to support the work of new or existing community groups or organisations that are working in the Derbyshire Dales and are in need of capital or revenue funding.
The fund is made up of money from Derbyshire Dales District Council, North Derbyshire and Erewash Clinical Commissioning Group and Derbyshire County Council Public Health.

Last year (2016-17) a total of £54,000 was awarded in small grants to fifty groups. The average capital grant was £1500 and the average revenue grant was £750.

We very much welcome applications from community groups doing something that has a health and well-being benefit or is of general benefit to their community, for example, this could be improvements to a village hall or community space, or the running of a club for young people.
There are quarterly rounds for applications with the next closing date being Friday 2nd February 2018.
Please contact Sarah Paisley or Jonathan Simcock at DDCVS for an application form. Tel 01629 812154 or email enquiries@ddcvs.org.uk
The form and guidelines can be made available in large print or on tape.
The form can also be downloaded from our website by going to http://www.ddcvs.org.uk/projects

Foundation Derbyshire is running the Youth Social Action Fund in Derbyshire. The fund has been developed as part of the #iwill campaign, which aims to increase youth volunteering by 50% by 2020 and is being delivered by many community foundations across England.
The money for this fund has been provided by Step Up to Serve, The Big Lottery and the Government.
Foundation Derbyshire will run this programme until at least March 2019. The amount available to give out will be dependant on how much ‘Match Funding’ the Foundation can raise from their bank of supporters and local philanthropists.The organisation is are aiming to have between £30 – £60K per annum to distribute.
The fund is looking to engage more young people in volunteering opportunities. These volunteer activities should get young people more involved in their local communities and ultimately make their communities better places to live.
The project should run regularly for a full year so that the volunteering becomes embedded in their lives – where possible.

Arcus Consulting on behalf of the Peak District National Park Authority has prepared documentation which describes how transport infrastructure can be designed in a way that achieves its functional purpose, whilst conserving and enhancing the character and appearance of the National Park.
The National Park Authority is undertaking a 9 week consultation period for comments on the document, commencing on Monday 13th November 2017.  Representations must be received either electronically or in writing at the National Park Authority Office by 5pm on Friday 12th January 2018.
On this occasion the National Park Authority has agreed with the main environmental bodies (Natural England, Historic England and the Environment Agency) that there is no need to undertake a Strategic Environmental Assessment as the main purpose of the document is to supplement higher level policies in the adopted Core Strategy (which has undergone full assessment).
The document can be inspected at various council offices and libraries in and around the National Park and can be viewed on the Authority’s website: – www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/transportdesigng ...
How to Respond
The consultation web-page contains a link to an on-line survey, which enables respondents to comment on the document.  Alternatively, representations in respect of the document can be sent either in writing to: –
Tim Nicholson, Transport Policy Planner, Peak District National Park Authority, Aldern House, Baslow Road, Bakewell, Derbyshire, DE45 1AE.
One free paper copy of the consultation documents can be provided to each parish upon request.
Residents of Doveridge are being invited to have their say on a draft Neighbourhood Development Plan that has been prepared for the parish.
This plan proposal has now been formally submitted to Derbyshire Dales District Council. If eventually approved, it will become part of the statutory planning framework for the area and used by the District Council to decide planning applications in the parish.
Every household in the village is receiving a letter with additional information and a link to an online survey at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/doveridgenp – open from 30 October to 11 December.
The Draft Neighbourhood Development Plan and supporting documents can be inspected at the Town Hall in Matlock and also at Doveridge Village Stores and Post Office, The Doveridge Club, The Cavendish Arms in the village and Doveridge Primary School.
The survey asks respondents if they support fully or support with changes or oppose elements of the draft plan. Responses, together with any accompanying comments, will be made publically available and will be forwarded to the Examiner at the next stage of Neighbourhood Plan development.
