The majority of bus shelters in Derbyshire are owned by the
local district or parish council who decide at which bus stop they
wish to place shelters. They are also responsible for the
maintenance and cleansing of the shelters.
The County Council check that the chosen location meets the road
safety requirements, e.g. visibility sightlines for traffic
emerging from nearby road junctions or driveways and adequate
footway widths. No bus shelter can be erected until planning
permission has been obtained.
