Community blog

Just launched in January 2023, this blog will feature history, local projects, community campaigns and other happenings and goings-on around Ashbourne.

Any local group or individual is welcome to blog here - please contact us with your ideas.

These are some of the ideas that we hope to be blogging about over the next few months....

All about the Town Team; 10 best things to do in Ashbourne, traffic flow; parking; pavements and verges; a stadium for Ashbourne Town Football Club; the East / West path; Shrovetide Walk; Ashbourne ParkRun; around the Millennium clock; the bypass; the water meadows; behind the scenes at Ashbourne Festival and many more.

The rest is still to come......

We haven't fully built this page yet. The remaining sections below are concepts......

Local democracy

We are going to explain how local elections work and showcase the work that our local councilors do for Ashbourne.

Council services

We are going to explain which council does what for Ashbourne and provide links to the relevant websites. We also want to cover how the Town Council spends your local Ashbourne taxes.

Section 106 monies

Housing developers have given millions of pounds to Ashbourne in return for planning permission to build their estates.  We want to discover how this money has been spent and tell you all about it.

What else?

Please tell us what else you would like to see covered on these community pages.
