Nethy Bridge Community Woodland -StrathspeyDesign development for the creation of a new community woodland within the village of Nethy bridge in the Cairngorm National Park. Initiated by Nethy Bridge Community Council, and undertaken by Craignish Design Landscape Architects, Munro Landscape assisted with the production of working drawings and community consultation events to develop ideas into practical designs for the community to enjoy. A management plan was prepared to enable the community to take ownership of the ex-plantation woodland and manage into a regenerating Caledonian pinewood habitat over time. Design features included a network of trails, habitat rides, water body and wetland areas, highland games viewing area and site furniture.

Newlands Programme, Northwest EnglandA £56 million programme to transform derelict, neglected and under used land within northwest England into Community Woodland sites by the Forestry Commission. Kelda Platt worked within the Forestry Commission team, alongside Foresters, Engineers, Ecologists and Soil Scientists to develop design proposals and oversee on-site delivery and on-going maintenance. The programme development phase was completed in 2011 to leave a legacy of maturing woodland and robust recreational facilities within socially deprived areas of northwest England, transforming many landfill sites, and ex-industrial plots into attractive and well used open space. more information
