A community engagement programme for the Woodside, Firhill & Hamiltonhill Development has won an award at the prestigious Landscape Institute Awards today, Thursday 24 November. Undertaken by Landscape architects LUC, it won in the category of Local Landscape Planning.
The Woodside, Firhill & Hamiltonhill Development Framework is an innovative vision for an area of north Glasgow prepared in liaison with the local community. An intensive four-day process included an art outreach programme, dialogue with over 300 people and the use of a paper boat as a symbol of change. An area of vacant and derelict land has now been reborn as a local nature reserve. The judges were impressed by an approach which ensured that the public were fully engaged and involved in the development.
The Landscape Institute Awards are presented in association with Aggregate Industries, Brett Landscape, Ground Control, Hardscape, Historic England, LUC, McParland Finn, Marshalls, Penter, and Wienerberger. The Awards ceremony was hosted by Simon Reeves on Thursday 24th November 2016 at The Brewery, London.
