Vision Derbyshire Economic Management Board privacy notice

Privacy notice for the Place department, Vision Derbyshire Economic Management Board: Start-Up Programme.

Derbyshire County Council and relevant district and borough councils have committed to Vision Derbyshire to drive forward efficiency and effectiveness improvements in the way the authorities work together.

Within the context of Vision Derbyshire, partners have agreed to strategically collaborate to improve outcomes for people and places, speak with one voice as a county, and co-ordinate resources better and more sustainably.

The Vision Derbyshire programme has an established governance framework consisting of:

  • a chief executives' steering group (made up of Derbyshire County Council, Derbyshire Dales District Council, Amber Valley Borough Council and Chesterfield Borough Council)
  • a wider Vision Derbyshire Chief Executives' Group (consisting of Derbyshire County Council and all district authorities, except South Derbyshire District Council)
  • a leaders' group which meets every month (made up of the Derbyshire County Council and all district authorities, except South Derbyshire District Council)

A number of pilot projects have been established within the Vision Derbyshire programme, one of which has been focused on economic development and supporting key aspects of COVID recovery.

Since July 2020, an Economic Development Working Group has been meeting to identify pilot project areas based on agreed collaboration principles and focused on key recovery issues in relation to: climate change, tourism, local economy, high street and town centre renewal and social mobility. The working group has been reporting progress to the Chief Executives' Steering Group and the Leaders' Group.

In December 2020, it was agreed the working group establish a business start-up project consisting of 5 new start-up advisers and an accompanying grant scheme to assist economic recovery and meet the objectives of developing and increasing the business base across Derbyshire. Learning from the pilot will help to inform longer term collaboration and business support programmes. A total of £1 million was secured from the D2 Joint Committee to support the work.

The original working group has now transformed into the Vision Derbyshire Economic Development Board which will be responsible for overseeing the progress and effectiveness of the start-up project. More specifically, a number of delivery arrangements have been developed:

  • all 10 Derbyshire authorities are included in the business start-up pilot project: Derbyshire County Council, Derby City Council, Amber Valley Borough Council, Bolsover District Council, Chesterfield Borough Council, Derbyshire Dales District Council, Erewash Borough Council (via the Erewash Business Partnership), High Peak Borough Council, North East Derbyshire District Council and South Derbyshire District Council
  • Derbyshire County Council is the employing organisation for the 5 new start-up advisers
  • day to day deployment of the advisers will be undertaken via the relevant district council
  • administration and management of the start-up grant scheme will be undertaken by Derbyshire County Council – working in partnership with the advisers, the city and district and borough councils
