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.

As part of the preparation of a new Amber Valley Borough Local Plan, Amber Valley Borough Council has commissioned the BE Group to undertake an Employment Land Review for the Borough. The Review will form part of the evidence base to inform the Local plan, by providing a comprehensive assessment of the supply of and the need and demand for office, industrial and warehouse space across the whole of the Borough. It will update a similar study, also completed by the BE Group, in 2016. As part of the Review, the BE Group will be consulting with key stakeholders and are seeking the views of all Parish/Town Councils in the Borough regarding the supply of and demand/need for employment sites and premises in each parish. For example, there may be existing buildings or sites within your parish that you would wish to see redeveloped, or you may consider there is a need to provide more local employment opportunities. Other possible concerns could relate to: More »

  • The impacts of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the local economy
  • A need for more sites for employment development
  • A requirement for an improved supply of office/industrial premises
  • A desire to attract employers to your area
  • A wish to encourage more people to work locally
  • The protection of the local area from unwanted development.

These are just examples. It is recognised that each Parish/Town Council varies in size, population, employment activity, etc. and may therefore have differing views or issues. It is also recognised that some Parish/Town Councils have prepared or are preparing Neighbourhood Plans which may set out policies on the economy. However, we would still wish to gain your views directly on the important matters relating to the Local Plan Review. The Borough Council would therefore be grateful to receive any comments you may wish to make. These should be provided directly to the BE Group, ideally by email to chriswilson@begroup.uk.com or alternatively in writing to BE Group, 1st Floor, 501 Birchwood One Business Park, Dewhurst Road, Birchwood, Warrington WA3 7GB.

The BE Group look forward to hearing from you, but should you require any further clarification, please contact Chris Wilson at the BE Group at the email address above, or by telephone on 01925 822112, or Derek Stafford at Amber Valley Borough Council, either by email at derek.stafford@ambervalley.gov.uk, or by telephone on 01773 841581.

Please provide any responses by 26 March 2021.

Yours sincerely

Derek Stafford
