Project background

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) Scotland has been awarded £38,805 to develop the Garnock Valley Futurescape project. This project aims to deliver landscape scale conservation across this part of North Ayrshire. A project officer will be employed to work with local communities, farmers, landowners and public agencies to develop a delivery plan for the Garnock Valley Futurescape identifying a range of early improvement projects and coordinating land management in the area to realise multiple benefits. Some of the projects envisaged as part of the delivery plan include wetland habitat enhancement projects, the development of natural flood management projects as part of the River Garnock catchment flood defence strategy, and a series of community engagement and volunteering events.
