Allestree Park

Have your say

Derbyshire Wildlife Trust is delighted to work with Derby City council and University of Derby to make the park better for people and wildlife. A consultation will now take place with the community to develop the plans for what will be the first large-scale urban rewilding project in the UK. 

Rewilding Allestree Park will bring the city wide-ranging benefits. Nature’s recovery in Derby will be supported by providing more space for wildlife-rich habitats and potential species reintroductions. It will also help the Council meet its carbon reduction targets by increasing Derby’s carbon storage capacity. Rewilding also gives Derby a “Natural Health Service” providing more opportunities for residents to improve their wellbeing by connecting with nature-rich greenspace. 

Derby City Council and Derbyshire Wildlife Trust want to hear from everyone who is interested in how the park can be developed into the UK’s largest urban rewilding space, whether they live nearby or enjoy the park regularly.  Have your say.
