Making A Difference
Long established woodland of plantation origin
Inchinnan Development Trust (IDT) has purchased the Teucheen woodland from Blythswood Trust via their agent Savills. Blythswood were looking to dispose of the woodland as the last part of their land holdings in the area. IDT members believe the woodland has a future as a community asset to the people of Inchinnan, and the wider communities.
The purchase transition completed on 20th December 2021.
IDT are currently working to undertake a full detailed arboreal survey, which will identify the required level of tree-works in line with current practice and legislation. The woodland is covered by a Tree Preservation Order.
If you do have any questions, concerns, or ideas please email the office where we are more than happy to help you - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inchinnan Development Trust (IDT) will operate on maintaining a professional relationship with all parties with an interest in the woods and surrounds.
India Tyres Playing Fields
One Step at a Time
IDT have submitted a Community Asset Transfer application to Renfrewshire Council which was validated on 12th January 2022. This document explains the potential community plans for the fields and the partnership with St. Mirren Youth FC as principal users.
This is an important green space in our community and sizeable enough to allow managed sports uses and other potential community outdoor uses - for example community allotments, a dedicated dog exercise park, walking/running circuit, biodiversity planting, children’s play area.
IDT aim to manage and maintain the parks to secure their future for the benefit of our community. We have formed an initial partnership between IDT and St. Mirren Youth FC, which allows us to seek funding and carry out improvements to the parks on a joint basis.
IDT is working positively with other groups and ideas on projects that will enhance the parks and provide long term benefits for all users of the area.

Helping The Community
Inchinnan Development Trust (IDT) would like to see the field opposite the Primary School secured, developed and improved. We believe the existing facilities require refurbishment and we already have ideas for the pavilion to be used as a tearoom (outside its use as a changing facility), and to improve the parking issues around the park during use and school opening hours.
IDT has formally lodged a 'note of interest' with Renfrewshire Council Estates with a view to community ownership/lease of the facility. This may allow the potential partnership of IDT and Parkmoor FC to manage the facility for the benefit of the wider community.
Braemar Road holistic pathway
Safer routes for all
The idea first came to mind many years ago to create a safer path/route from the Braemar Road/Beardmore areas from the other side of the estate wall along Old Greenock Road. The greenspace along Braemar Road has many grand overarching trees, which create a therapeutic canopy to take a walk among nature.
Inchinnan Development Trust (IDT) in partnership with Inchinnan Community Council (ICC), Inchinnan Primary School (IPS), Paths-for-all, Renfrewshire Council, and in discussion with LittleInch Care Home, are very excited to be in the process of attempting to finally bring this idea into reality.
The proposal entails a pathway running close to the estate wall, which will loop around the entire greenspace with a link path leading towards LittleInch property line and access directly through the school for pupils only.
We have many issues to resolve and challenges to meet with this proposal. With a positive approach and consideration for all concerns, IDT is confident we can find a way to make this work for everyone.
