Cutting the Ribbon on India Tyres Playing Fields: Welcoming A New Era of Community Management

We’re thrilled to officially cut the ribbon on India Tyres Playing Fields, marking their return to community management and future as a community hub for generations to come. It was wonderful to see so many from our local and wider communities come together to celebrate this massive achievement!


While still in the process of securing Teucheen Wood, IDT set our sights on other greenspaces and woodlands within Inchinnan that may be at risk of loss. India Tyres Playing Field had been at risk for many decades, being preserved and maintained only by the hard work of residents on India Drive and Allands Avenue (and with the support of Councillor Iain Nicolson). Work began on consulting our community and developing a plan to ensure the field’s future - the process was a long and tricky one but with lots of help and support from various people and organisations, Inchinnan successfully secured our second asset into community ownership!


A few thank yous to the organisations and funders who helped us along the way:

Development Trust Association Scotland and the Community Ownership Support Service team, Engage Renfrewshire, Community Land Scotland, staff from Renfrewshire Council’s Community Empowerment Fund and the Community Asset Transfer team, St. Mirren Youth Football Club, University of the West of Scotland’s Alan Murray, local councillor Iain Nicolson and of course the community of Inchinnan, our hard-working volunteers and dedicated board members.
