In February 2018 Grassland Hasmoor Big Local launched its second community profile of Grassmoor and Hasland, North Derbyshire. In addition to updating local demographic information the profile outlines Big Local's progress to date and summarises feedback from residents on their future aspirations. The forward plan is presented under two themes - PEOPLE ( children and young people, working families and senior citizens) and PLACES (green and open spaces, living environment and community facilities).
