Project background

Central Scotland Forest Trust has been awarded £75,000 to develop and deliver a programme of woodland, greenspace, wetland and path improvements in the Dedridge Burn and Murieston Water corridors in south Livingston. Working with West Lothian Council and local community groups a masterplan and detailed works specification will be prepared that aims to reconnect the currently fragmented green and blue spaces and paths in the area. Some of the physical improvements planned include: management of existing, neglected woodlands; planting of small, new areas of native woodland; pond restoration and new wetland creation; creation of new swales and wildflower meadows; and path upgrades and the installation of new signage, interpretation and seating.
