Derwent Valley Rail Partnership

The Derwent Valley Rail Partnership is a group consisting of representatives of all the Parishes in the Derwent Valley and parts of the adjacent Amber Valley, Peak Rail and the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, East Midlands Trains, Network Rail, Derbyshire County Council and Derbyshire Dales District Council.


It is chaired by an elected nominee of the County Council - at present it is our Ward Member Cllr Irene Ratcliffe with Cllr Garry Purdy, the previous Chair, as Vice Chair.


The partnership has proved very effective in getting improved services from Matlock Bath and Cromford to major cities including London St Pancras, Leicester and Nottingham.


There is a period at the beginning of each meeting for Public Participation when any member of the public can put their needs and suggestions to the Committee. Please continue to make your voices heard as this Committee has direct access to the train company and is greatly valued by them.


The Draft Notes from previous meetings are posted here as they become available.

Further details can be obtained from the Parish Clerk.
