Douglas West Community Woodland

A real asset for the community

The group was awarded a community asset transfer from South Lanarkshire Council for the purchase of the land at Douglas West Woodland on 30th June 2021. The asset transfer has been a focus of the group's for many years now, with lots of time and effort being put in by volunteers to get us to where we are today.

The group has already been completing work in the woodland, from maintaining path network of the woodland, to planting our beautiful cherry blossom trees in March.

The asset transfer will allow the group to take greater ownership over the woodland, and we have big plans for the area going forward.

The group has carried out feasibility studies on the land, and our main aim is making the woodland more accessible, and create opportunities that will be of significant benefit to the wider community.

A big thanks

None of this would have been possible without the help of our amazing members, volunteers, funders, and South Lanarkshire Council.
