Cuningar Loop Woodland Park has been named a winner at the national awards ceremony of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), the most prestigious and respected event of its type in the UK planning industry.

The park won in the Health and Wellbeing category, with judges describing the project as “transformational” with an “impressively inclusive approach with all stakeholders”.

They said: “The project benefits the local community and is a driving force for delivering economic and social benefits to the area as a tourist destination. Cuningar Loop is not only an exciting project with a transferable approach, but it’s inspirational too.”

The submission for the award was made by South Lanarkshire Council who worked alongside the funding partners, Clyde Gateway and Forestry Commission Scotland, in the transformation of derelict wasteland with a history of quarrying, illegal mining and landfill to a 15-hectare urban woodland park connecting the communities of Rutherglen in South Lanarkshire and Dalmarnock and Parkhead in Glasgow’s East End.
