In January 2021, the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (North East LEP) awarded Ouseburn Farm and the Ouseburn Trust £50,000 towards the delivery of the Ouseburn Green Spaces project. The grant from the North East LEPs ‘Local Growth Fund’, which provides funding to major capital projects in all seven local authority areas to support the delivery of the North East Strategic Economic Plan, will enable us to collaboratively transform the area’s tired green spaces.

This initial phase of the Ouseburn Green Spaces Project will focus on three key elements - the woodland diversity plan; accessibility and viability improvements of the orchard and pond areas; and repairs to the stone reading circle. 

You can watch the latest project developments on this page, so keep checking back to find out how we're getting along.
