Coronavirus Update

We are receiving daily updates and information from our Local Authorities - DDDC and DCC - so will post as much information as we can. However, as the information is changing on a daily basis we cannot guarantee that things listed below are still valid.

Currently all meetings of Matlock Bath Parish Council have been cancelled until further notice. We have been advised that decisions can be made through e-mail providing there is clear evidence of agreement. We will be producing notes of the agended items for the meeting which should have been held on 25th March. This will be posted on our website, under Meetings and Documentation once it is available. Regular reports will be put on the website thereafter.

DDDC has advised us that a decision has had to be made with regard to bin collections due to staff shortages at SERCO as a result of some staff having to self isolate. Garden waste collections are suspended from Friday 27th March and food waste collections are now fortnightly (with your general waste collection). DDDC's aim is to focus on general waste and recycling collections but please note these may not always happen to schedule.

Parking charges in DDDC car parks have been suspended until further notice. Clear signage will be put up asking motorists if they need to be there and to follow current Government coronavirus measures.

We have been made aware that criminal activity has increased with some scams, on the doorstep theft, a farmer badly beaten up over the weekend and some companies already being complained about for profiteering through this crisis. Please beware.

DDDC is currently investigating what happens about MOTs. The Government is considering whether to suspend the obligation for cars.

All country parks are closed with immediate effect.

Matlock Town Hall is now closed to personal visitors. You can still call them on 01629 761100. If you wish to pay a bill (Council Tax or Business Rates) or report an issue, comment on a planning application log on to www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/DoItOnline Bills can be paid online by telephoning 01629 761295.
