WELCOME

We are delighted to introduce you to Hazelwood Parish Council's new website and to our beautiful Parish. Whether you are a resident, visitor or potential business, the web site's intention is to provide a welter of information about the Parish and the Parish Council - all with the aim of making the Parish a better place to live, visit or work. The site will be developed continuously and we invite all residents, at the onset, to contribute to its future content.

It's for everyone…

We want the Parish to thrive and so drawing together all parts of the community is one of the Parish Council's primary concerns. Our web site covers all the individual settlements within the Parish, including the relevant parts of Shottle Gate and Blackbrook, Over Lane, Lumb Lane, Goodwin's Lane, Hazelwood Hill and Hob Hill. Wherever you live, our aim is to ensure that the Parish Council represents you fully.

…and for visitors, too.

Should you be visiting friends in the Parish or the area in general, we invite you to select the 'Around and about Hazelwood' tab. This gives you a lot of information about the Parish's history and some of the more interesting features. For country lovers, whether walking, cycling or horse riding, we have also included a full description of the local flora and fauna. There is also a handy map of the Parish to help you enjoy the seven miles of well-kept footpaths

We warmly invite you to browse the site, whether for future Council meetings dates, information on who is on the Council, the latest planning information, both within the Parish and Amber Valley as a whole, or what's on in the Parish. The social programme within the Parish is a busy one with various club activities at the Memorial Hall, seasonal play on the bowling green and regular church services at St. John's.

Tell us what you think

Our new web site offers an excellent opportunity for all Parish residents to provide information and make helpful suggestions. Any comments will be welcomed as the web team adds to the site.

We very much look forward to hearing from you.

Hazelwood Parish Council provides YOUR local services. We strive to make Hazelwood a better place to live, work and visit. Our website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Find local groups and businesses in our community directory. Use the search or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find what you want or would like to recommend any improvements to our website then please contact us.

Bus Strategy update: " This remains a developing issue , the Parish Council has written to Derbys CC and to the bus operators to remind them of the reliance of many Hazelwood Parishioners on our local bus service , and of the impact should the service be reduced or terminated. Both have responded to acknowledge the concerns , and the PC will continue to monitor the situation .

Policing Update: " whilst the pressure on Police resources is understood , the discontinuation of the regular Police Surgery in Hazelwood means that we seldom see a police presence in the Parish . The PC has written to the Derbyshire Police & Crime Commissioner to register this , and to request that at the very least a drive through by a police vehicle could be scheduled in order to give Parishioners some confidence. Our communication has been acknowledged , and a contact Officer has been appointed to follow up our concern. Again this will continue to receive our focus."
