What We Do

Derrington Millennium Green is  located near to Stafford in the Midlands, United Kingdom. The site consist of approximately 13 acres of wild flower meadows, orchards, pond and woodland. The Green  is managed by the villagers, via a trust and trustees, all of whom are volunteers. The aim of the site is to provide a natural open space where nature can flourish and the villages and the general population can take a break from the hectic world we live in.

Duddas Wood

Adjacent to The Millennium Green is Duddas Wood. This is a 23 acre site and was purchased as part of the original project. It is now managed by the Woodland Trust ....

Statement on the creation of Pryce Meadows Nature Reserve and Derrington Village Parking

 

These are the reasons we are applying for planning permission to create a new nature reserve:

  • Provide a dedicated nature reserve to encourage endangered species to thrive and to support our natural environment.

  • Provide increased capacity for flood water (after minor ground works undertaken) to help reduce flooding downstream including Stafford town.

  • Provide a wetland meadow, an important habitat massively lost due to intensive agriculture in the UK since WWII, to once again encourage endangered species to survive.

  • Enable the planting of additional trees and shrubs

  • Give additional space for the visitors of Derrington Millennium Green (the majority of our visitors are local and arrive by foot or bicycle).

  • Provide further amenities for disabled persons.

     

Car Parking

 

There have been some concerns from some of the residents of Church Lane and Meadow lane regarding parking. People park their cars on Church Lane to use the following amenities:

  • The Church

  • The Children's play area

  • The Sports field

  • Duddas Wood

  • The Greenway Walking and Cycle Route.

  • Derrington Millennium Green

  • Local Footpaths (e.g. to the Castle)

     

Of the above Derrington Millennium Green (with the exception of two spaces at the Church) is the only one that has a dedicated car park (10 spaces).

It is not the responsibility of the Derrington Millennium Green Trust to provide parking for all of the above village amenities.

Any issues must be referred and dealt with at a village level with both Parish and County council input.

How we started

History

In March 1998 two fields, adjacent to the village, were put up for sale. Considering that the smaller eleven acre field would make an ideal wildlife area, a group of volunteers sought out ways to buy the land and turn it into a  village amenity ........
