Businesses of Derby are being asked by 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.
Responses to consultation will be used to help councillors decide whether to continue using the current model or to introduce the new model. A special Council meeting will be held to consider the proposal and if, at this meeting, a two-thirds majority of councillors support a change to the election cycle, the motion will be passed for a move to ‘Whole Council Elections’.
The consultation is open until Monday 23rd March 2020. Click here to access the consultation.
