Cuningar Loop Community Woodland Park masterplan receives Planning Consent
Austin-Smith:Lord’s masterplan for a new community woodland on the Cuningar Loop on the River Clyde, opposite the Commonwealth Games village in Glasgow’s East End has secured planning consent from South Lanarkshire Council. The project, one of the Games legacy projects, will rehabilitate a vacant and derelict site to create a network of natural habitats, paths and trails, events spaces and outdoor activity facilities to encourage active participation in sport and enhance access to nature in an urban setting.
The masterplan for the 14 Ha site includes a path network that links to a new pedestrian bridge being taken forward by Glasgow City Council. The site works are to progress with Robertson Construction via the Scape Framework and are scheduled to be completed in 2014.
