Dales residents registering a birth, marriage or death can look forward to a more flexible and convenient service if proposals put forward by Derbyshire County Council are approved.
The Derbyshire Registration Scheme currently sets out how the countywide service is run and where and how staff are employed.
However proposals have been drawn up for consideration of the Registrar General to improve the current service.
The proposed new arrangements will improve customer choice and accessibility, make the service more flexible and help ensure there is a consistently high standard across the county.
All existing register offices will continue to offer birth, marriage and death registration and to carry out ceremonies.
