Claire is Greenspace Projects Manager at North Lanarkshire Council.

Claire heads up the Country Parks for the Future program in North Lanarkshire which, over the next ten years will be transforming three country parks into vibrant, healthy spaces for everyone. Her love of parks started at an early age and she passionately believes that whether they are pocket parks or cover hundreds of acres, Natural or formal, urban or wilderness, they deserves investment to protect all of the benefits they provide for wildlife and people.

Over the last twenty years she has worked for a range of not for profit and public organisations, fundraising for open spaces, engaging with the communities who use them, project managing improvements and writing long term management plans. Prior to joining North Lanarkshire Council, Claire worked for Falkirk Community Trust managing key strategic parks and outdoor sports facilities in Falkirk.
