The Lyne Burn Green Network is a collaborative project. We are working closely in partnership with national organisations and local groups to deliver environmental and community benefits.
Every day the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) works to protect and enhance Scotland’s environment, helping communities and businesses thrive within the resources of our planet. We call this One Planet Prosperity.
Restoring damaged and neglected rivers is one way in which we can help achieve that ambition.
Like many of our natural resources, our rivers are under pressure and in places, damaged. SEPA's Water Environment Fund (WEF) contributes to partnerships for the restoration for urban rivers and the surrounding greenspace.
