A key objective of the Vision should be to improve and create new parks, pocket parks, landscaped areas, green walls and roofs. It should also seek to make more of existing water courses and introduce a network of new water features.

This will not only create a more attractive townscape and complement our ambition to transform public realm, but it will complementPicture of Hull city centre water features our objectives to tackle climate change and help create a healthier environment.

There is an opportunity to make a bold statement at the heart of the city centre, through the creation of a new city park on the riverside, with the potential to incrementally increase its size over time.

This will create an amenity for surrounding new neighbourhoods as well as proving an asset for a strengthened visitor economy.

Elsewhere within the city centre unattractive routes and spaces will be greened to create a healthier and more attractive environment for those that live and work in central Derby.

Key headlines within this section are:

  • The River Derwent and City Park
  • Our City Our River
  • Greening the inner ring road
  • Greening other streets and routes
  • Water features
  • Biodiversity net gain

Green Infrastructure

about 1 month

The Ambition identifies: 

  • potential creation of a new City Park on the riverside (using the open land behind the bus station to link the existing River Gardens with Bass' Recreation Ground)
  • a number of streets that would benefit from 'greening' through planting and landscaping

You can place a pin marker onto the map and add your comments to tell us:

  • if we have identified the right general location for a proposed City Park 
  • how and where we could enlarge this over the long term
  • if we have identified the right streets to be prioritised for greening  
CLOSED: This map consultation has concluded.
