County’s voice on partnership

John Burrows, leader of Chesterfield Borough Council, has been appointed as the representative for all Derbyshire district and borough councils on the board of D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.

Newark and Sherwood leader councillor Roger Blaney is the voice for Nottinghamshire.

Councillor Burrows said: “It is an important step forward for all district and borough councils in Derbyshire to have our importance to economic regeneration recognised properly by having a seat at the table. Our role is just as important as that of local businesses if we are to improve the economies of our local communities.”
