Proposals for Climate Ready Parks - Woodhill and Etive Parks

Residents’ views are being sought on exciting new proposals to turn Etive and Woodhill parks in Bishopbriggs in East Dunbartonshire’s first Climate Ready Park.

East Dunbartonshire Council, in partnership with East Dunbartonshire Voluntary Action, is proposing to improve these open spaces which are located close to the centre of the town.

Proposals include providing above-ground surface water features to minimise localised flooding, new and improved paths, new children’s play facilities and increased opportunities for residents to grow their own food.

These Green Infrastructure improvements will also have significant benefits for wildlife and local habitats. You can have a say and find out more at the public consultation meeting.

The event details are:

Date: Monday 29 April 2019
Time: 3.30pm to 6.45pm (drop-in)
Venue: Auchinairn Early Learning and Childcare Centre, Beech Road, Bishopbriggs, G64 1NE


It is proposed that improvements to the park will be in the form of:

1. Naturalised flood mitigation works
2. Allotment creation
3. Path and gateway feature upgrades
4. Habitat improvements for wildlife
5. Play park upgrading and recreational provision.

Electronic copies of the proposal can also be obtained on request by e-mailing greenspace@eastdunbarton.gov.uk. Following the event, the proposals and a questionnaire will be available to view below.   

Your comments will be used to shape the plans, which will be submitted as part of a major planning application to the Council and subject to external grant applications. Once a planning application is submitted a further opportunity to make representations to the planning authority on any development proposals will be made available.

The consultation will end on 29 May 2019
