Save New Mills Sixth Form. We request the council reject the proposal to close New Mills Sixth Form. We believe that the council needs to give the school MORE TIME and further support to enable the school to become financially secure, whilst still maintaining its sixth form provision. The children of New Mills and surrounding villages should have the right to access post 16 education within their own community.

SAVE SCHOOL CROSSING PATROLS IN DERBYSHIRE
Save The No.11 Bus service at Evenings and Weekends, Serving Ilkeston, West Hallam, Stanley Common, Shipley View, Ilkeston Hospital. The bus service is the only public transport link to Ilkeston and Derby, for the villages of West Hallam and Stanley, as well as serving the Shipley View Estate, Ilkeston Hospital and the outskirts of Oakwood and Chaddesden. The removal of this service would have a detrimental effect on the economies of both Ilkeston and Derby, whilst increasing the travel costs for the general population, who rely on this service for work and social activities.
- North Wingfield, St Lawrence Road between The White Hart Inn and The Gate Inn - Request for Pedestri
St Lawrence Road, North Wingfield between The White hart Inn and The Gate Inn needs a pedestrian crossing (Zebra, Pelican or Puffin)to allow safe crossing of pedestrians of all ages at all times. A school crossing patrol warden during school times is not enough.This is a busy road and is extremely difficult and time consuming to cross safely during high traffic flow, it will benefit the community's safety to have a pedestrian crossing on this part of the road.

SAVE OUR YOUTH SERVICE (SOYS) We the undersigned oppose Derbyshire County Council's plans to close its Youth Centres and make up to 157 Youth Workers redundant. Under the Conservative led government young people are at risk of becoming a lost generation, being the target of national and local spending cuts. Young people are facing the highest unemployment levels in decades, the trebling of tuition fees, the abolition of the Education Maintenance Allowance and in Derbyshire are having to pay more for public transport because of the b_line cuts. They now face the loss of youth services which provide access to a wide range of social and cultural activities, health advice and general support. We call on Derbyshire County Council to retain the current directly provided universal youth service.

Current primary school admissions policy states that children that live in the apparent catchment area of a certain school are given a priority place for primary education there. For any parent who already has a child at that school, they are not given any preference even if they live out of area. The current admissions policy does not take into consideration current economic circumstances which have forced many parents to move areas but chose to keep their existing child/ ren at that school as a source of continuity in their lives or placed any regard to social circumstances e.g. bullying. Some older siblings have chosen to go to a specific school through bullying elsewhere. When allocating siblings spaces at other schools they don't consider the practicality of how a parent can collect children from 2 different schools at the same time It seems almost farcical that we are still following catchment area guidelines that were drawn up many years ago. Many parents today chose to send their children to schools near where granparents live, where childminders with spaces collect from or along routes or near to workplaces. With current economic clime how can the old existing system be fair to the children. We therefore request that Derbyshire County Council re-evaluate the existing Primary School Admissions Procedure to give parents with existing siblings at any given school equal priority to live in catchment area places.
