Future for Elvaston

As part of the Future for Elvaston project,  local people were asked for their views on a draft 10-year vision and plan for Elvaston Castle and Estate in autumn 2013.


Since the 1990s the cost of running the estate and maintaining the buildings has become increasingly difficult. The estate currently costs over £800,000 for us to run.

We've been looking for a sustainable way forward for Elvaston for some years and is currently working hard together with the National Trust to look at how to secure its future.

A series of public workshops were held in autumn 2013 with local people, visitors, partners and organisations about the future of the Elvaston estate. The ideas gathered from the workshops have been used to develop the draft vision. We now want to know what you think about our ideas.

Please get involved and help shape the future of this wonderful place.
