Green and blue infrastructure in Glasgow's East End

The green and blue infrastructure project in Greater Easterhouse will use and develop the area's natural resources to encourage use of local parks and other high-quality green and water spaces, creating drainage capacity to facilitate regeneration, reducing flooding and protecting local wildlife. It is being delivered by Glasgow City Council in partnership with Scottish Natural Heritage and the Metropolitan Glasgow Strategic Drainage Partnership - the latter funded through the Glasgow City Region City Deal.
 
The project will see improvements to greenspaces in Blairtummock, Cranhill and Ruchazie and aims to increase access to high quality greenspace - including links to the Seven Lochs Wetland Park. It will provide the surface water drainage solution for residential and commercial developments, reduce flood risk through improved surface water management; and create connected habitat networks for the area's grassland water voles.
 
Scottish Natural Heritage is providing funding for these works through the European Regional Development Fund, which will be match-funded by the Glasgow City Region City Deal through the Metropolitan Glasgow Strategic Drainage Partnership. For more information click here
