Amber Valley is a local government district and borough in Derbyshire, England. It takes its name from the River Amber and covers a semi-rural area with a number of small towns formerly based around coal mining and engineering. The parliamentary constituency of Amber Valley covers a similar area.

The village of Crich and the Amber Valley area were the setting for the ITV drama series Peak Practice.


The district was formed on 1 April 1974 by the merger of the urban districts of Alfreton, Belper, Heanor and Ripley Rural District and Belper Rural District. The district was granted borough status in 1988.

Politics

Elections to the Borough Council are held in three out of every four years, with one third of the 45 seats on the council being elected at each election. The council has been controlled by the Conservative party since they gained control from the Labour party at the 2000 election.
