Greening Swinton is a pilot social value project that Avison Young are co-delivering at Swinton Square Shopping Centre, with Groundwork North West and Project Ignition.
The vision is to transform Swinton Square Shopping Centre with the creation of practical, yet beautiful green spaces. The Project will bring people together, put nature into an urban area and help to green Swinton at a time when natural green space has never been more valued or needed.
To achieve this vision, Groundwork North West are installing Nature based Solutions (NbS) across the external areas of the shopping centre with a range of rain gardens, green walls and colourful flower beds. In doing so, we believe we can enhance the centre in a variety of ways, with solutions that have a functional purpose, but also deliver wider benefits such as: provision of green space, increased biodiversity, improving air quality, as well as enhancing the well being of people who live, work and shop at the centre.
Work is due to start in the coming weeks we would love to hear your feedback by calling into the management office or getting in touch via our Facebook page @SwintonSquare
