Investment Sites in United Kingdom
Six VALUE+ investments received funding from Interreg IVB NWE, a financial instrument of the European Union’s Cohesion Policy, which supported transnational cooperation. The sites showcased excellent landscape design and effective community engagement across North West Europe. VALUE+ investments included the creation of new parks, innovative use of derelict land, creation of green routes for people and wildlife and re-interpretation of forgotten places into valued green space. Each investment had its own social media platform enabling the local community to become involved with and exchange information about the investment. VALUE+ used interactive tools, 3D visualisations, workshops and community events to involve communities in the development of their local green spaces and turn local people into EU Champions.
