Landfill site to become the UK's largest urban forest

CHRIS MCAULEY
29 April 2005

A NOTORIOUS landfill site in the East End of Glasgow is to be transformed into the largest urban forest in the UK after the ambitious £1.5 million project was given the green light by city councillors yesterday.

Plans to transform Paterson’s landfill site in Mount Vernon, known locally as Paterson’s Tip, into a verdant oasis in the midst of a post-industrial landscape will now become a reality.

Set to span some 230 acres, the new urban forest will see more than a million trees planted, with lush meadows, wild flowers and rambling walkways replacing current eyesores such as rusting white goods, mountains of waste and overflowing skips.

The news will be especially welcomed by locals, given the infamous reputation of the site, one of the largest industrial dumps in any European city.
