The masterplan tackles the legibility of the estate by relocating the car park adjacent to the historic buildings at the core of the estate.  These buildings will be restored and converted to accommodate uses to enhance visits to Elvaston.  Uses will include visitor welcome and interpretation; visitor facilities such as toilets; a new café/restaurant; retail and craft units and an adventurous play facility.  In combination with this, some spaces and buildings will be managed for ‘pop-up’ retail.  The ground floor of the Castle is to be converted so that it can be used to host weddings, conferences and meetings, as well as a programme of other activities.

The Masterplan has been created using the Essential Repairs and Future Options Reports commissioned by Derbyshire County Council and the Trust.
