Ferguslie Park Green Network Strategy

Ferguslie Park Green Network Strategy

The Ferguslie Park Green Network Strategy was commissioned by the GCV Green Network Partnership in 2007 to explore how the Green Network can be delivered at the neighbourhood level.

There are many hurdles to creating a sustainable Green Network in Ferguslie Park. Outdoor opportunities for play and recreation are limited and the area has a high proportion of bleak vacant land offering little to attract biodiversity.

The delivery of the Green Network at Ferguslie Park would create a more positive image for the area through the enhancement of local greenspace involving the local community.

Completed in 2008, the Ferguslie Park Green Network Strategy identifies several opportunities to address existing environmental issues in the area. Opportunities exist to:

  • Bring to life the high quality design features once evident at Glencoats Park to benefit residents
  • Develop Barochan Greenspace for allotments, an orchard, a plant nursery and wildlife garden
  • Create a light and sound garden at the Tannahill Centre building community capacity
  • Encourage community empowerment & ownership
  • Develop safe accessible walking and cycling routes within and beyond the community
  • Transform open space at North Candren for biodiversity and recreational purposes

Following completion of the strategy, several other studies were commissioned to explore how recommendations might be taken forward.
