City election cycle

City election cycle

Residents and businesses of Derby are being asked by Bondholder Derby City Council to give their opinions on how the city runs its local elections.

A consultation is underway to consider moving from the current ‘Elections by Thirds’ model, where elections are held three times in every four years, to the 'Whole Council Elections’ model, with an election held once every four years.

In previous consultations, Marketing Derby, the Derby Renaissance Board and the wider business community have been strong supporters of the proposed change, which will save the taxpayer £475,000.

Emily Feenan, Director of Legal, Procurement and Democratic Services and Monitoring Officer at the Council, said: “With so much change in the Council in the last four years it’s a good opportunity for us to visit this proposal again with no election next year."

The consultation is opened for residents and businesses to have their say until Monday 23rd March 2020. Click here to access the consultation.
