Sustainable Travel Plan

We are encouraging people to leave their cars at home by supporting an initiative to develop a Walk & Ride Network of safe and pleasant routes for walkers, cyclists and in some cases horse riders. The aim is to link residential areas with schools, places of work, the town centre and shops – as well as existing cycle trails and footpath networks. This project is one of several initiatives led by our Access, Parking, Traffic & Transport group. The latest addition is Buses & Boots, which aims to map out a series of walks starting from local railway stations and bus stops.


Very Big Spring Clean

A town clean-up has become an annual event – but this year's is bigger than ever. We split the area into zones, each covered by a different team, who clean signs, litter bins, post boxes and anything else they come across as well as picking up litter and clearing any weeds.

Buxton Baublers

Each year we work with other organisations to decorate the town for Christmas – putting the seasonal sparkle back into Buxton. Decorations are created by the Baublers... who also decorate the town during summer Festival season and for Remembrance Sunday.


Fairfield Road – Gateway to Buxton

Fairfield is one of the main routes into town, but it wasn't the greatest advert! So a group of local residents got together to improve it by cleaning, tidying and beautifying.

Utilising Corporate Volunteer Hours

Employees from some local companies have used paid 'volunteer' time off to help the Town Team with projects including repainting the bridges in the Pavilion Gardens. New ideas and volunteers are always welcome.

Slopes About Town

Weekly work sessions on The Slopes have become a regular activity for Town Team volunteers – who meet weekly to take care of everything from weeding, trimming, cleaning moss from stone walls, urns and railings, and painting the benches. Recently their sessions have been doubled and include not just on The Slopes, but at numerous sites around the town too. 

Operation Ashwood Park

This neglected garden alongside the River Wye has been transformed thanks to volunteers who have planted flowers, cut back trees and cleared the river. They have also driven valuable initiatives such as Rewilding the River Wye. Our latest project involves raising funds to replace the Ashwood bridges, making them safe, usable and accessible to all.

Litter Picking Group

Once a month, the group meets somewhere around the town, taking bags, barrows and litter pickers with them, to clear out the rubbish and keep Buxton looking beautiful. 


That’s not all: we're always on the lookout for new projects. If you have a suggestion that fits in with Town Team objectives – or if you'd like to get involved in helping with any of our projects – we’d love to hear from you. Contact details below.
