Glendevon Drive Greenspace

Working with Stirling Council and Inner Forth Futures to make the greenspace along Glendevon Drive more climate resilient and turn it into a more welcoming park space for the local community.



Glendevon Drive has been shortlisted as a suitable greenspace for improvement works that will support the delivery of the Climate FORTH (Furthering Our Resilience Through Heritage) project by Inner Forth Futures (IFF).

In our role as an IFF delivery partner and acting on behalf of Stirling Council, we are currently seeking the local community’s views on a set of proposed interventions in the greenspace, which focus on reducing the impacts of heavy rainfall and supporting climate adaptation and resilience.

Community Engagement

We are currently seeking the local community’s views on the proposals at Glendevon Drive. As well as increasing the long-term climate resilience of the space, the proposals aim to offer more value to the local community and create seasonal interest. They include:

  • Shaded areas of seating, with the provision of new specimen trees and picnic benches, to create better places to enjoy the greenspace during hot summer periods.
  • Delivering health and wellbeing benefits to the local community through planting, by mitigating the negative impacts of air pollution, with trees able to absorb carbon dioxide and areas of meadow grass able to store and capture carbon.
  • New elements that also provide important habitat for native invertebrates and other wildlife, with studies showing levels of invertebrates up to 25 times higher within meadow grass as opposed to amenity grass.
  • Areas of low maintenance meadow grass that offer further ways to become more resilient to a changing climate with their ability to withstand drought and reduce flood risk and soil erosion.
  • Tree planting to provide biodiversity improvements for the area and create a space to enjoy and relax in, whilst providing an environmental buffer from nearby roads.
  • The addition of many native species of wildflowers and trees offering educational value to visitors to learn more about the variety of native plants included in the area.
