Planning the Park

The vision for the Seven Lochs Wetland Park is of a new park of national significance, sustaining and enhancing a high quality, innovative wetland environment that will:

  • Protect and enhance biodiversity
  • Promote health and well-being
  • Contribute to environmental, economic and social regeneration.

Plans for the park have developed over the last few years as studies have shown just how special the area’s heritage and nature really is. More recently plans for new housing development in the Seven Lochs area has focussed attention on how important it will be to protect and improve important sites linked to the Seven Lochs.

A Seven Lochs Wetland Park vision and masterplan has been published. This identifies the important features in the area, and looks at how they can be brought together to create a large scale park and visitor destination that is ‘more than the sum of its parts’. A Seven Lochs Partnership, bringing together Glasgow City Council, North Lanarkshire Council, Forestry Commission Scotland, TCV Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage has been formed. The partnership will work with Glasgow and Clyde Valley Green Network partnership and Glasgow Building Preservation Trust to take forwards plans for the park.
