Helping to shape
your place

In a post-pandemic world with a focus on economic recovery, many Bondholders are thinking beyond narrow company interests. Many have become ambassadors for Derby and Derbyshire and choose to engage in supporting the regeneration and investment agenda by influencing policy and planning.
The best way to do this is to join the Derby Economic Development Advisory Committee (DEDAC).
