Have your say on plans for East Midlands Devolution

East Midlands Devolution

We want to hear from everyone, including landlords and private rented tenants, on plans for devolution for Nottingham, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, and Derby.

The deal, which offers the region a package of new powers and funding worth £1.14 billion, or £38 million a year over the next 30 years, has the potential to make a real difference to people’s lives.

Benefits of devolution include:

  • More and better housing
  • More investment and economic growth
  • More and better jobs
  • Better transport and skills training
  • An enhanced greener environment

Devolution would result in more important decisions being taken in the East Midlands by people who know and understand the region, to bring benefits to people who live in, work in, or visit the area, to improve quality of life.

Devolution would create a new Combined County Authority, with a new directly elected regional mayor covering both counties and cities, with an election taking place in May 2024. Local councils would still exist as individual councils and would work together on a formal and legal basis to improve the region for our communities and businesses.

The consultation closes on Monday 9 January 2023, and this is your opportunity to give us your views.

Christmas recycling tips

We all like to recycle as much as we can, but do your tenants know what can be recycled and what cannot this festive season 🎄

🎁 Did you know, not all wrapping paper can be recycled?

✅ Do the scrunch test to find out if your paper can go in your recycling brown bin grey lid.

      If it scrunches, it CAN be recycled.

❌ Foil / glitter wrapping paper & Christmas cards CAN'T be recycled

  • Only 1 tree per household
  • The tree must be a real tree
