Stage 3 Consultation closes
The third stage of the consultation has now closed. Thank you to all those residents who contributed, we received lots of positive feedback at our in-person events and some great written responses from the online and paper surveys. The Town Council are very grateful for the effort taken to comment upon the proposed design ideas. Our team will now work with the designers to analyse the feedback and the final design will be revealed in the new year. Please refer to this site for updates.
The third stage of public consultation about the renovation of The Meadows will take place throughout October.
The Town Council would like to invite all residents to take the opportunity to offer their views on the proposed layout and design features. This can be done online by reading the information below, or the panels can be viewed in the Wirksworth Town Hall vestibule from 2-31 October, where a physical feedback form can be completed. The Town Council will also exhibit proposals at the Farmers Market on 1 October and the Tuesday market on 4 October.

The first consultation regarding The Meadows has now closed. The summary document showing the results of that process is available to download here:
Copies are also available to read in the library.
Following inevitable delays due to the pandemic, the Town Council hope to progress the Meadows project this autumn. We will take the most popular suggestions from stage 1 and filter and finesse these through a second stage consultation, resulting, hopefully, in a selection which can be put out to designers. The resulting design(s) will then be the subject of a final public consultation. The planned timetable for this project can be viewed here: Meadows action plan.

For contributions to the first stage of the Meadows consultation
Following the interruption of the first consultation regarding the future use of The Meadows in March last year, the Town Council is re-opening the consultation for six weeks from 22 March. Many responses were received in 2020, for which the council is very grateful (you do not need to re-submit if you have already contributed). This extension will allow for submissions by those residents who were unable to contribute at the outbreak of the Covid epidemic.
If you would like to submit an idea for the use of the area, please tell us in 100 words or less by 30 April. You can email:
email@example.com or write to: The Meadows consultation, Town Hall, Wirksworth, Derbyshire, DE4 4EU
To avoid risk of transmission we will not be distributing/ handling leaflets at this time but an updated version of the leaflet produced last year is available for view here: Information leaflet
The submissions from this first round will be used to help guide the next stage of consultation, which we hope to launch in early Autumn.
Picture the Meadows
Family consultation: Sadly following the sudden school closures, planned projects could not take place in order to gather ideas from local children. Therefore, if your child
would like to draw a picture illustrating their ideas for the area, we would like to receive them.
These will be displayed at future consultation events.
Email their designs to:
or post to:
Town Hall, Coldwell Street, Wirksworth, DE4 4EU
We look forward to seeing them!
