The council’s vision is that it will make South Derbyshire a better place to live, visit and invest. We set out to deliver this by focusing on the things that are most important to the District and its success, namely our People, our Environment and our Future. These three themes underpin everything we do. Our new Corporate Plan is a concise statement of our objectives in each of these areas.
