Clermiston Park Improvements
Community engagement and greenspace improvements
On behalf of the City of Edinburgh Council, ELGT have put together an Improvement Plan for Clermiston Park, making suggestions for its management over the next two years. Two consultation events were held in January at the Drumbrae Library Hub, along with the opportunity to email your comments on the first draft of the Plan.
We were grateful for everyone’s feedback and suggestions which were discussed with the Council. Below is a link to the Feedback Summary document which summarises the feedback received from the consultation and the response from the Council, detailing what is and what is not possible. Below is also a link to the final version of the Clermiston Park Improvement Plan. Where possible, suggestions from the consultation have been incorporated.
We look forward to helping take this plan forward with the Council and local community and thank everyone for taking the time to tell us their feedback and suggestions!
As part of delivering the activities in Clermiston Park’s 2020-22 Management Plan, ELGT and the City of Edinburgh Council extended and filled in gaps in the parks hedgerow, planting native species such as hawthorn, field maple, beech and birch. Hedgerows provide food and shelter for wildlife and act as green corridors, offering refuge in what can be a sparse urban landscape
