Approach paths to Langlands Moss LNR
WORK TOWARDS RESURFACING APPROACH PATH
Over the years, the access paths to the Moss had become water logged and overgrown which deterred people from visiting the Moss. We applied to the Renewable Energy Fund for money to improve the paths. Once we received this grant, the paths were completely cleared and resurfaced by the SLC Community Payback Scheme.
New Boardwalk Project
how much did it cost?
The new broadwalk project cost about £100,000. It was made from recycled plastic with a projected fifty year lifespan.
WHO PAID FOR IT?
The Friends of Langlands Moss raised £30,000 from SLC Renewable Energy Leader Programme, £30,000 from Viridor Landfill Programme and £40,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
What are the benefits of a new boardwalk?
Our organisation hoped that this new boardwalk would attract a greater number of people to the reserve enabling the local community to benefit from this valuable local greenspace which provides space for recreation and raises environmental awareness.
