North East Derbyshire District Council (NEDDC) is making good progress towards achieving their annual targets, with action needed to support community recycling and environmental projects.

The authority’s 2019-23 Council Plan targets update for October to December 2022 showed it was ‘on track’ for 55 per cent of goals, had already achieved 38 per cent previously and two per cent within the three-month period.

Alerts were flagged for the remaining five per cent of goals, which could potentially not be achieved by the end of the financial year.

The four targets in question were to achieve a combined recycling and composting rate of 50 per cent by March 2023,  increase participation in activities at leisure centres by 5,000 visits, provide ten waste, recycling and environmental advice to schools and community events and support at least six school climate change projects a year.

Addressing NEDDC Cabinet, information, engagement and performance manager Kath Drury explained: “We know with the leisure centres we’re doing a lot of investment in all facilities and that’s had some impact on participation levels, obviously that will come to an end and participation will pick up.”

She added that customer satisfaction remained ‘really high’ however.

The officer described recycling as a ‘difficult target’ to hit, but said NEDDC was not alone in struggling to hit recycling targets as issues such as contamination levels were faced by all local authorities.
