Through a process of consultations and community engagement, the Derbyshire Derwent Catchment Partnership has been forming over the last couple of years, and the first Steering Group meeting was held in March 2015. These are now held on a quarterly basis.

The Derbyshire Derwent Catchment Partnership Plan has been formulated from all the information that has been gathered from catchment partners over the years. From this, we will prioritise projects, apply for funding and then relevant partners will implement work on the ground.

Derbyshire Derwent Catchment Partnership Event
A partnership event was held in January 2016 in Bakewell. This day included a series of short talks and interactive workshops from people carrying out projects throughout the catchment. Six potential projects were then discussed and ideas put forward for how to get these up and running. These and other potential projects include:
• River Amber
• Derby urban
• Bottle Brook
• Water voles
• White Peak
• Natural flood risk management
• Crayfish
• Invasive species management
• Moor education
• Transforming the Trent Valley
