Trustees, staff and members work together in this group to improve the environment, paths, parking and roads in the valley.  It is committed to practical active work and meets in two working groups:

Transport Working Group - meets on the first Tuesday of each month to comment on current transport issues and develop a vision for the future of transport in Ouseburn.  Find out about current work and the next meetings here.  Previous work of this group has included DIY Streets - developing improvements for cyclists and pedestrians using funds from the Council’s Cycle City Ambition Programme and with support from sustainable transport charity Sustrans. It is now mostly complete but you can read about what was achieved here.

Green Working Group - meets seasonally but members are busy weekly on practical projects

  • Clean Green Ouseburn - volunteer working parties to keep the valley tidy and improve the green spaces. Join in on a Saturday morning (meet at 10am behind The Ship Inn) or bring a group on a team-building day. 
  • Commenting on current environmental projects
  • Woodland review - surveying the condition of trees and making a long term plan to maintain and improve woodland areas.

If you would like to attend a specific meeting or become a member of this group please contact the Chair of the Environment & Transport Group.
