Implementation of additional Nature-Based Solutions (NBS)

Posted by CBAG on May 20, 2022

Back in May 2018, Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) were awarded £540k for a unique multiyear OPERANDUM research project in Catterline, as detailed here.

As part of this project, a series of Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) against landslides and erosion on the braes of Catterline were successfully constructed in June 2021, as can be seen in our gallery here.

CBAG are pleased to report that a second series of NBS measures will be implemented between the 6th June and the 17th June 2022! The works will be carried out by specialised contractor Salix together with Naturalea. The locations of the planned interventions are shown in the picture below, and you will find more information about the project in this document.

Please note that the access road to the pier will be closed during this period, and signage will be put in place for this purpose. However, GCU have indicated that they will facilitate access to the pier and beach as much as possible.
