1. Derby Civic Society in partnership with Derby Hippodrome Restoration

Derby Civic Society in partnership with Derby Hippodrome Restoration Trust have revealed their plan to transform the Green Lane/Duckworth Sq area with a bold plan of regeneration which would, among other things, provide the City with a new Concert Hall as well as a restored Hippodrome for commercial theatre productions.

The Society is hoping to persuade the City Council to back this scheme instead of their own proposals.





2. Report on the Buildings at risk Questionnaire

We are working with the Derbyshire Historic Buildings Trust (DHBT) to identify the most important buildings on the ″at risk″ register in our city.

 

The DHBT had drawn up a list of 10 buildings throughout Derbyshire that they considered priorities for restoration of which 5 are situated within the Derby City boundaries.

I recently circulated a questionnaire to our membership to obtain their views on these five buildings.

 

The first part of the questionnaire was to ask people to rate each building in accordance of the importance of that building to them.
