Hamiltonhill Claypits Management Group have finally got their hands on the 2022 Golden Pineapple awarded for the creation of the finest new public space in the whole of the UK for that year.
Judges were impressed by the redesignation of the large 17-hectare area from ‘Vacant and Derelict Land’ to a ‘Local Nature Reserve’. They praised the management group’s understanding of the needs of all parts of the community, and its balancing of the requirements of stakeholders. Judges also noted the significant challenge in making this site accessible for the first time in hundreds of years.
Claypits Nature Reserve is on our doorstep here at South Speirs Wharf and all Woodside residents and workers are urged to make use of this superb local asset.
