An innovative nature park project in Falkirk has won two awards at the prestigious Scottish Awards for Quality in Planning.
The Carron Dams Local Nature Reserve not only won the public voted People’s Choice Award, but was crowned Overall Winner at the Scottish Government accolades that celebrate achievements in Scottish planning.
The Inner Forth Landscape Initiative (IFLI) has won a national planning award. It was one of just four organisations from across Scotland that have been recognised in this way for their partnership working in the Scottish Awards for Quality Planning 2019, which are considered some of the Scottish Government’s most prestigious awards.
The Inner Forth Landscape Initiative was a £4m partnership programme that included CSGNT and ran between 2014 and 2018. Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, it delivered over 50 projects to conserve, enhance and celebrate the natural, built and cultural heritage of the unique landscape at the upper reaches of the Firth of Forth. As a legacy of the partnership, Inner Forth Futures (IFF) is now continuing to work towards its aims.
A significant area of woodlands on one of Europe’s largest regeneration sites could be set for a new lease of life.
