The link below will take you to the Elvaston Castle Master Plan, decided by Derbyshire County Council and implemented by the Elvaston Castle and Gardens trust

ECAG considers the plan to be contrary to the Council’s own vision and guiding principles.

The proposed road will cut through the heart of parkland, there will be a loss of green space, grazing and water meadows​.

The proposed car park and showground relocation would be  seriously detrimental to the essence of the country park.

The proposed route  would result in the destruction of trees and wildlife habitats.

The implementation cost for this plan would be disproportionate to any perceived benefits​.


Visitors come to Elvaston Castle to enjoy the green open space​ – they want a country park, not a car park!
