Our City, Our River

What is Our City, Our River?

Did you know that there are currently approximately 2,000 properties in Derby that are at risk from flooding? 

To address this, we have been working in partnership with the Environment Agency to create a scheme designed to reduce the risk of flooding, while maximising regeneration opportunities and environmental improvements.

As well as safeguarding people and property, the Our City, Our River project is seen as an important mechanism for enhancing the local environment, creating better public access and protecting the biodiversity and heritage assets along the riverside. The ambition is for the scheme to be completed by 2023, subject to securing planning approvals and funding.

To view the latest updates of the Our City Our River scheme and to learn more about the scheme and its benefits to the City, view the dedicated Our City Our River website.
