Darley Park multi-user path gets go ahead from City Council

The Derby City Planning Control Committee have approved the plans for the multi-user path from Derby Rowing club to Darley Abbey (The Abbey pub) by 6 votes to 3.

Excellent news for the Derwent Valley Cycleway as this new path will link with the Cycleway and provide sustainable travel access into the park. It will also create an superb facility for youngsters, scooter riders, old people, people with disabilities, etc. to do circular tours along both sides of the Derwent (through Darley Fields, through the mill, and back through Darley Park and over Handyside Bridge).

Well done to all those who supported the proposals and made their views known to the decision makers. Also well done for the City Councillors on the planning committee who could see the huge benefits that the path will provide.
