Canal schemes barge through

May 27 2009

Canal schemes barge through
‘Scottish Sustainable Communities’ status has been dolled out by the Scottish Government in recognition of the “step change” in design, quality and environmental standards offered by 11 key projects from across Scotland:

•    An Camas Mor, Aviemore, Rothiemurchus Estate
•    Craigmillar, Edinburgh, PARC Craigmillar
•    Grandhome and Whitestripes, Aberdeen, The Grandhome Trust
•    Knockroon, Cumnock, The Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment
•    Ladyfield, Dumfries, The Crichton Trust
•    Lochgelly, Fife, Fife Council
•    Maryhill Locks, Glasgow, Glasgow Canal Regeneration Partnership
•    Raploch, Stirling, Raploch URC
•    Speirs Locks, Glasgow, Glasgow Canal Regeneration Partnership
•    Tornagrain, near Inverness, Moray Estates
•    Whitecross, near Linlithgow, Morston Assets Ltd

Each of these low carbon communities will be held up as an exemplar for the Scottish Government’s aim of supporting developments which are designed and built to last.

The result is particularly good news for the Glasgow Canal Regeneration Partnership, developer of both Speirs Locks and Maryhill Locks, in their efforts to revitalise the Forth and Clyde canal corridor from Port Dundas to Maryhill.

What the award means in practical terms is still unclear.
