Developer funding to create greenspace improvements in north-east of Glasgow

Glasgow City Council has given the green light to the allocation of over £85,000 in ENV2 (developer contributions) funding to help improve greenspace in Auchinlea Park and Inishail Road in the city's Easterhouse and Craigend/Garthamlock.


Developer funding to help deliver greenspace projects in Glasgow


The £85,633 funding comes from developer contributions from schemes at Gartloch Road / Craiglockhart Street and Westerhouse Road / Auchinlea Road, with the capital element supporting work to be delivered this year and the revenue element supporting future maintenance of these spaces.


The work will see the delivery of access, landscape and habitat improvements at Auchinlea Park (pictured above) and Inishail Road greenspace, the former a small but diverse park that is home to the historic Provan Hall and the latter a significant area of amenity grassland and plantation woodland that sits between Inishail Road, the M8 and Avenue End Road:


· New fencing and hedging on the boundaries to the grounds of Provan Hall, which recently saw a £3.6million restoration;

· Creation of direct access from Glasgow Fort shopping centre to the grounds of Provan Hall;

· Tree management, maintenance and planting at Auchinlea Park;

· Wildflower / bulb planting at Inishail Road greenspace;

· Tree planting - 24 new trees - at Inishail Road greenspace; and

· Woodland management and maintenance.


Councillor Kenny McLean, Convener for Land Use at Glasgow City Council, said: "The approval of the funding raised through local developments will help to bring these improvements to these popular and attractive places in the north-east of the city. When complete, the works will make it easier for more people to visit both, and for visitors to get more from their time there."


These works are expected to be complete in the Autumn of 2024, and the balance of the £153,589 overall cost will be met by the Area Partnership Open Space Fund (£52,337) and £15,619 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund (Seven Lochs Project).
