Welcome to Transition Belper

We are a group of local people who, as part of a growing "Transition" network made up of towns and cities all over the world, are exploring how we can increase our community's ability to withstand the twin challenges of peak oil and climate change. Our activities are all aimed at making the market town of Belper a more sustainable place for us all to live, work and play, and at the same time reducing our impact on the planet and our individual and community carbon footprint.

Transition Belper is made up of people from all ages and backgrounds. It is not a political group, or a campaigning group. What brings us together is a shared desire for action for the benefit of our local community and our planet.

So instead of worrying about the future of the planet, join us!

Belper Station Crew get stuck in

A lot of work has been done over the past two years. Most of the plants we put in are thriving – amazingly, they have survived all the cold, wet and drought periods. Over the next few months we will continue to develop the original concept and design.
We are growing a sustainable garden to be enjoyed by local residents and commuters as well as visitors to Belper – a garden which encourages insect pollinators, birds and butterflies …..
We want to create an area of biodiversity in the centre of our town which is attractive throughout the year and encourage even more people to use the train.  Perennial flowers, shrubs, small trees and native wild species, which are visually (and aromatically) varied, will provide a habitat for many more species of wildlife.
