If you can't find what you want or would like to recommend any improvements to our website please contact us.
Meetings of the Parish Council are held on the first Monday of every month (excluding bank holidays) at the Village Hall on Pear Tree Road. Members of the Public are welcome to observe at the meetings and have the opportunity to raise any local issues in part of the meeting for Public Speaking.

A revision of electoral arrangements in North East Derbyshire is underway and the Parish Council has suggested two fundamental changes to the present arrangements.
Firstly we have called for the number of District Councillors to be reduced. There are presently 53 Councillors on North East Derbyshire District Council but bearing in mind that:- More »
(a) the key function of housing was, some years ago, devolved to Rykneld Homes;
(b) Parish Councils (who themselves have over two hundred Parish Councillors in North East Derbyshire) provide a number of local services such as sports/recreation grounds, cemeteries, litter collection etc;
(c) the District Council's budget has been reduced over the past few years and will continue to be reduced in the future;
we feel that there is a compelling case for the number of Councillors on NEDDC to be reduced.
Secondly we are calling for changes to the present arrangements which link Pilsley to other areas with which we have little or nothing in common.
Presently we have three District Councillors representing the "Pilsley and Morton" Ward which includes Pilsley, Morton and Stretton and which includes Wooley Moor and extends right up to the border with Ashover.
We feel that it would be much more advantageous to the public of Pilsley to be in a Ward comprising Pilsley and Lower Pilsley only and to have just one District Councillor representing us.
Our representations to the Local Government Boundary Commission can be seen on the Parish Council's web-site and we will update you when we receive the Commission's findings.

For a number of years now the Parish Council has sent reports of its meetings to The Derbyshire Times to be printed in its "Grassroots" section.
Unfortunately, there have been many occasions when the reports have not appeared and no explanation has ever been given to us for this. More »
A number of months ago the Council Chairman went to the newspaper's office to try to resolve the problem of the missing reports and was given an assurance that, provided they were presented in a certain way, they would definitely appear in "Grassroots.
Alas, this assurance has proved to be false and once again neither an explanation nor an apology has been received by the Parish Council.
We have had enough of this and no further reports will be sent. We have notified Derbyshire Times of our decision but, in keeping with our recent experience with them there has been, as usual, no response.
What a disgraceful way to treat the public by a so called community newspaper.
The Council's minutes are, of course, posted on our website and the public can always obtain them in various forms by contacting any Parish Councillor or the clerk. » Less
