Tenders invited for new interpretation for Cumbernauld greenspaces
As part of Cumbernauld Living Landscape’s aim to help people to get the most out of the wonderful green spaces on our doorstep, we are planning to install some new interpretation. This is what we want the interpretation to achieve:
The interpretation gives people the knowledge and confidence to explore Cumbernauld, including Wildlife Trust reserves, Council-owned sites, and a large network of paths and access routes.
- Highlights links between larger areas of open space, and the network that they create
- Encourages appropriate behaviour to make these green spaces safer and more pleasant for everyone to use, and easier for land managers to protect and manage.
- Provides maps, routes, and waymarking in a number of forms to facilitate this.
The interpretation increases pride in the area by emphasising that Cumbernauld is an important and special place for its wildlife and heritage
- Raises awareness and knowledge of Cumbernauld’s specific natural, cultural and historic landscape
- Enriches people’s experience through inspiring and creative ways to interact with the landscape.
The interpretation highlights the work of Cumbernauld Living Landscape.
- Highlights the importance of partnership working in achieving our aims for the people, wildlife and heritage of Cumbernauld.
- Identifies projects – eg path work, meadow or woodland creation etc
- Explains why this work is also important to tackle the climate and biodiversity crises.
To achieve this we are inviting tenders from specialist interpretation consultants who have experience of designing, manufacturing and installing a range of different kinds of interpretation. A copy of the tender brief can be downloaded here. The deadline for submission is Monday 4 October.
