Trustees, staff and members work together in this group to improve the environment, paths, parking and roads in the valley.  This group originated as an Ouseburn Futures theme group and is now continuing to develop its activities as a sub group of the Ouseburn Trust, bringing the two organisations together as a stronger united voice for the Ouseburn Valley.

Our particular interests include

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. More information is available here.

DIY Streets - this project has been 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.

Woodland review - surveying the condition of trees and making a long term plan to maintain and improve woodland areas.

As well as weekly hands-on activities we meet occasionally to plan and discuss environment and transport issues, 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.
