Green Routes Feasibility Study
Scottish Wildlife Trust
March – October 2015
Part of the Cumbernauld Living Landscape programme, the project looked to transform the centre of Cumbernauld and its links to surrounding communities by improving the accessibility of three key Green Routes.
A key part of the project was gathering the views and ideas of local residents about how existing aspects of the routes could be improved to encourage people to safely use them more regularly.
Pidgin Perfect worked with Collective Architecture and Aecom to identify where the routes could benefit from improvement and produce a costed feasibility study.
Pidgin Perfect independently engage communities, using our expertise to capture the ideas, visions and values of the people of Cumbernauld, developing a strategic consultation process designed to create numerous opportunities to engage the population of Cumbernauld with the project. A number of different platforms were used – from open public events and organised walking tours to direct contact creative workshops with schools and young people – to support a wide range of participants to provide their knowledge and ideas to the study.
