Culbokie Green

Culbokie Green will be a car-free haven in the heart of the village providing a community gathering space, a local destination for informal recreation or just an off-road walking route through part of the village. The Green has been designed to be attractive to all sections of the community with the following features:

  • Meadows which will be cut once or twice per year to promote flowering and encourage butterflies and bees

  • Mown areas suitable for playing and to keep the Green looking tidy

Volunteering will be promoted to help with the creation and upkeep of the Green. This will provide a positive opportunity to bring the community together, develop and share skills and build local capacity. Volunteer involvement may allow savings on the full commercial price of upkeep that has been considered within the financial assessment.
