Welcome to Future for Elvaston

Elvaston Castle and Country Park is a wonderful and much loved landscape, owned and managed by Derbyshire County Council

Derbyshire County Council has been looking for a sustainable way forward for Elvaston Castle and Estate for some years and is currently working in partnership with the National Trust to secure its future. 

The Cabinet at Derbyshire County Council approved the 10 year ‘Vision and Plan’ for Elvaston Castle and Estate on the 17th June 2014. This now sets the road map for the future of this special place.

The next steps for the Derbyshire CC and National Trust project team include:

  • Work to start to set up a new managing body (perhaps a Charitable Trust) for Elvaston, to take forward the future of the Estate
  • Business and financial planning
  • Preparation of a Heritage Lottery Fund bid to start delivery of the Vision

More than 400 local people and interested organisations took part in the consultation process on the draft plan earlier this year, and these comments have all been carefully considered. Thank you to everyone that contributed.

To see the revised ‘Vision and Plan’ go to the Engagement & Consultation Documents page.
