Plymouth is over 40 per cent greenspace, protecting and making best use of this is a key part to the Plymouth Plan. The plan also sets out to reduce the city’s carbon emissions by 50 per cent and increase recycling rates to 50 per cent.

There are a number of exciting major developments including:

Derriford Community Park

Derriford Community Park aims to deliver a high quality multi-functional green space that communities and visitors can access as a way of improving health and an environmental education centre offering learning opportunities.

To turn the idea of a community park in the north of the city into a reality a plan has been developed that identifies projects and proposals which will bring Derriford Community Park to life. The plan sets out the opportunities for an exciting green space destination in Derriford that will deliver benefits for the whole city.

Plymouth Energy Community

Plymouth Energy Community is a local Community Benefit Society aiming to give people in Plymouth the power to change how they buy, use and generate energy. They are run by the community for the community and work with a wide range of organisations.
