Welcome to Future for Elvaston

Development Board to be created for Elvaston Castle

We’ve worked closely with the local community and others to develop an exciting Vision for the future of Elvaston which we believe can be best delivered by a new management body for the Estate such as a Charitable Trust.

Derbyshire County Council has recently approved the creation of an advisory ‘Development Board’ for Elvaston Castle. The Development Board will work in partnership with Derbyshire County Council and others to champion the formation of the new managing body for the Estate that will ultimately take on responsibility for the Estate and make the Vision a reality.

The core purpose of the Development Board is:

  • To provide input and advice to Derbyshire County Council in the early strategic initiation, delivery and implementation of the 10 year Vision and Plan for Elvaston Castle and Estate;
  • To act as advocate for the proposed new management body for Elvaston Castle and Estate and to work towards the creation of the new management body.

The Development Board will also bring commercial and business acumen, innovation, creative flair and enterprise to help shape initiation of the Vision.

We have now commenced the recruitment process for the Chair of the Board, please refer to the Development Board page on this website.
