Stop press – 17a saved!


Well done to all the local residents of Darley Abbey and Darley ward who joined and supported our campaign to save the 17A bus service! You turned up at the bus stop, you responded to my bus survey letter and you wrote to the Derby City Councillors to urge the Conservatives to see sense.

You have shown how much you value your bus service and how important it is for so many people in Darley Village, Broadway and in Allestree.

Well done!! Thank you for all your support.

Alison Martin
Darley Ward Labour Candidate, 2020.


Hello and thank you for visiting my website!

I am very pleased that Darley Ward selected me to stand as your councillor in this May’s City Council election.

As a local woman, I know the ward well: it’s a vibrant area with lots of diverse and active communities. I will work with all the residents and community groups in Darley to make sure that we preserve its heritage, develop its potential and maintain a good quality of life for everyone who lives here.




I am an ex-university lecturer with two children, so I am passionate about education and will support the nurseries and schools in the ward; I was Chair of Governors at Woodlands School for many years.

I will support community initiatives in Darley and do my utmost to protect and improve its many parks, open spaces and historic buildings.

I care about environmental issues and look forward to working with Darley residents on those matters.


We need to make sure community facilities are supported and developed, and try to provide more activities for young people.

I’ve been talking to as many residents as possible to listen to your views and deal with any concerns you have. 

If you have any issues you want to raise with me, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. 

Thank you.
