The Cumbernauld Living Landscape partnership is looking for a project manager and communications officer for the Heritage Lottery funded Creating Natural Connections project

Over the next four years the vision is to put nature and people at the heart of Cumbernauld’s future. Famous for its 1950’s New Town design, Cumbernauld is now home to 52,000 people and a surprising diversity of wildlife. Natural heritage is one of the town’s greatest assets, with woodland, parks and open spaces covering 50% of its area. However, today this natural network is under threat, fragmented and under-appreciated.

Working with young people and the local community the project will connect people to the nature on their doorsteps. Biodiversity and access improvements will form the foundation for volunteering and skills development that will unlock community capacity. These activities will inspire more people to care about local heritage and use nature to improve their wellbeing. The relationships developed will create a more sustainable legacy for the town’s greenspaces and the many benefits they bring.
