Elvaston Castle Country Park in Derbyshire encompasses over 300 acres of open parkland and woodland as well as a Grade 2 listed castle and Grade 2* listed formal gardens. It is owned and managed by Derbyshire County Council. In 2014 a new Vision for Elvaston set out the Council’s intention to establish a new independent body to manage the estate.
Since early 2015 Shared Assets has worked with the Council and the National Trust to support them in developing a new management body for the Estate. This has included the recruitment of a Development Board, agreeing a timetable and process for transfer of the asset, and establishing a new charitable trust to take on the management of the site. We are continuing to work with them to recruit and induct new trustees and develop a business plan for the site.
“It has been great to have such a depth of expertise ‘on tap’ throughout the process. Shared Assets are flexible, readily accessible, and open to debate and challenge.” - Nick Sellwood, National Trust
