Coalfield Communities Landscape Partnership

This series of community-led projects was based on the unique natural and cultural heritage of the UNESCO Biosphere’s former coalmining villages and towns, celebrating residents’ sense of place and bringing a wider understanding of the history of East Ayrshire. But it wasn’t just a look back into the past; CCLP was about learning and regeneration, and identifying local opportunities for sustainable development.

A collaboration of twelve public and third sector partners helped residents bring the Coalfield Communities projects to life until the scheme concluded in spring 2024.
