Context

Edinburgh & Lothian Greenspace Trust received £18,050 to prepare the River Almond Corridor Integrated Management Plan to consider access, woodland expansion and woodland management along the full length of the river corridor, from Cramond upstream to West Lothian. Investigation from Newbridge to the Union Canal focused on finding and negotiating a path route and addressing barriers and engineering issues.  From Newbridge to Cramond the project explored habitat opportunities, access, and landowner co-operation. As a consequence of these investigations, the City of Edinburgh Council has now assigned staff time to allow the work to be progressed beyond the feasibility stage focussing on engagement, communications and raising project funding.
