Munio project overview

Munio logo and European Union logo

MUNIO I is our latest project to reduce flood risk concentrating along the west riverbank on some existing businesses in the city centre and Pride Park. The project is part funded from the England European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.

The project will also enhance defined areas of existing habitat, actively promoting and improving biodiversity in various locations along the west riverbank stretching from Darley Abbey to Alvaston Park.

Where is the construction work taking place?

The main construction works in the city centre locations are planned to start in summer 2019, subject to planning consent.

Where is the environmental work taking place?

All proposals have been drawn up in consultation with:

  • local Park's Friends Groups
  • the Earl of Harrington Angling Club
  • ecologists
  • the Environment Agency.

The contract to deliver these environmental improvements has been awarded. Works started in early March 2019 at Alvaston, Pride Park, Darley and Nutwood. It is planned to continue through to December 2019.
