Have Your Say


Welcome to the Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service's website where the Service invites the public to 'Have their Say' on public consultations undertaken, or views we are currently seeking. The section contains information on Current Consultations and Previous Consultations.

Current Consultations

Budget Consultation

At its meeting on 7 December 2017, the Fire Authority considered the Medium Term Financial Strategy for 2018/2022 which included a draft budget strategy. A copy of the full paper presented to Members can be found through the following link, for your information and consideration. 

The Authority would value your comments and suggestions in relation to its strategy, including the proposal to increase Council Tax by just under 2%, equivalent to £1.43 per household for a Band D property. The Government also announced on 19 December that the previous limit on council tax increases of 2% before the need for a referendum has been increased to 3%. A 3% increase is equivalent to £2.15 per household for a Band D property. The Authority is scheduled to meet on 15 February 2018 to finalise the budget and set its Council Tax and precepts for 2018/2019.  In order for your response to be fully considered and taken into account in preparing the final budget report, we would be grateful to hear from you by no later than Friday 26 January 2018.

Please send your responses, in respect of the Medium Term Financial Strategy, to the Treasurer for the Authority:

IRMP 2017-2021

Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Authority (DFRA) is required to produce and publish an Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP). This plan is a core strategic document which drives all our work to respond to all foreseeable risks in Derbyshire. 

We manage risk through our activities in Prevention, Protection and Response, and are always looking for other ways to improve how we work. Our ‘Service development themes’ provide the strategic focus for us to do this. They are similar to those we have used previously and we hope to follow these strategic statements to concentrate our work for the challenges we face in 2017- 2021. In addition, each year from 2017-21 we will develop an action plan which will give direction to our work activities. We consulted on the draft IRMP between 5th December 2016 and 12th February 2017 and the report of this consultation can be found below. This was reported to Fire Authority on 16th March 2017.
