Greenway strategies

Ironville

Greenways provide a valuable resource to encourage accessibility and promote healthy living.


Our Greenway strategies have identified routes that meet the goals of Natural England and create a user-friendly network to link communities and places of interest across Derbyshire and through the Peak District National Park.

The aim of the strategies at this stage is to identify the potential for developing a network of Greenways across Derbyshire. No dedicated funding has been approved to implement the strategies, but it is hoped that they will provide the basis to safeguard the routes and pursue funding as and when opportunities arise.

There are provisions within the Local Transport Plan which could be used to contribute to the development process.

The development and funding of new sections of the network will be the subject of individual reports before any commitment to proceed is made.

The documents attached contain maps and are large in size, so may take longer to open.

Greenway Strategy Updates

Three Greenway strategies currently exist to show existing routes and potential future projects. These are now under review to update the proposals and show the full extent of the current built network, reflecting works achieved since the plans were written. It is intended that one overall Greenway strategy shall replace the current three documents attached to this page.
