Tarmac in the community: Tarmac Landfill Communities Fund creates smoother and safer ride for all with new pump track in Derbyshire

September 26, 2023

A £16,000 grant from the Tarmac Landfill Communities Fund has seen Whaley Park Pump Track in Derbyshire receive a much-needed repair.

The funding has been used to resurface the existing pump track. Installed back in 2012 and whilst still popular, the stone surface was wearing away and in need of urgent repair.

The majority of the course has now been resurfaced, creating a smoother and safer ride for all. Since being restored, the pump track has seen more use from the local community than ever before.

The Landfill Communities Fund was established by the Government in 1996. It enables landfill operators to donate part of their annual tax liability to enrolled Environmental Bodies for a variety of approved community and environmental projects. Through the fund, Tarmac donates around £1 million to projects each year.
