Temporary footpath closure w/c 20th November 2017 - Old Lane to South Avenue, Darley Abbey
As part of the OCOR flood defence project we are carrying out environmental improvements in various areas, one of which is to upgrade the access track from South Avenue to the canoe club in Darley Abbey.
The main works will be undertaken next year but we need to do some preparation works before then.
We will need to close the footpath for a couple of days to access the track while the work is carried out.
Diversion signs will be in place during this time.

The construction work taking place on Sowter Road means that it is unlikely to re-open until just before Christmas for the holiday period.

New sports facilities are to be constructed to replace those lost due to the OCOR flood defence works. A planning application has been submitted and we are awaiting approval.
The site area is within the Derwent Valley World Heritage site, Chester Green Conservation area and mainly within the Little Chester Roman Scheduled monument. The proposals and detailed levels of excavation have been developed in conjunction with Heritage England and Derby City Council Conservation officers. Depths of excavation have been provisionally agreed and the nature of archaeological monitoring established. This is subject to Scheduled Monument Consent approval.
