South Skipton Employment Zone Green and Blue Infrastructure
The Newground Landscape Architects were appointed by Craven District Council to work collaboratively with Bowland Ecology on detailed surveys and assessment for proposed green and blue infrastructure works in and around Aireville Park and the Leeds Liverpool Canal corridor. Proposals also incorporated adjacent water channels and local catchment areas as part of flood mitigation scheme improvements in the area, with input from the Engineering and Special Projects Team at Pendle Borough Council.
The works delivered included proposals, costings and detail designs for the management and enhancement of woodland, wetland and grassland habitats along with improved accessibility between green space, new employment space and Skipton town centre.
Craven District Council has recently identified opportunities to deliver some of the proposals through a series of specific bids, to incorporate into other projects or via grounds maintenance arrangements.
