Derbyshire is a great place to live and work. It's only a short drive to Manchester, Nottingham, Sheffield and Derby but is also home to miles of beautiful countryside and has the Peak District National Park on its doorstep. The county enjoys house prices below the UK average and has great road and rail links.

We're a council that cares − and that comes across to our families.
