We’re pleased to announce the launch of the new South Derbyshire District Council website.

We've introduced a new website with a fresh look and feel, simpler navigation, streamlined, jargon-free content and an improved site search facility.

Our new website is also device responsive, meaning you can interact and transact with us on a PC, laptop, tablet or smart phone.

If you wish to apply, report, request or pay for a service, we have more than 65 easy to use online forms. We've also introduced a new save and reload feature allowing users to save their uncompleted forms, create a login and a password and use that to come back at a later date to complete and submit their online form.

Innovative new tools such as online mapping have been designed to enhance our user experience. Enter your postcode in the address search at the top of the website to find out more about your local services, including bin collection dates and nearby planning applications.

To make it easier to be kept informed of Council news, you can also subscribe to our RSS feed to automatically receive the latest headlines straight to your inbox.

Our Things to do and places to visit section brings to life the many attractions and activities that make South Derbyshire such a great place to live, work and visit.

Our new website also provides accessibility features to support those with visual impairments.

These features have been introduced as a result of extensive research, usability testing, data analysis and online feedback.

With 20,000 people visiting our website every month, it is important our online services are flexible and functional to meet your needs.

It is our aim to make digital services accessible for everyone - or #digit-all as we like to call it.

More new features will follow to ensure our website continues to evolve. This includes introducing a personalised MySouthDerbyshire customer account, strengthening how you interact with us and online public event booking.

Your feedback is vital. Let us know about your experiences on the website - good and bad - and anything we can do to improve further.
