In April 2019, Iglu Studio Ltd, an urban and landscape design practice based in Fife, was commissioned to deliver the masterplan for The Leven. The brief was simple: to help build on the vision for the River Leven by “developing a strong, inclusive growth narrative and masterplan for the catchment project,” the key outputs of which include:

  • a graphical vision for the Leven catchment;
  • a Masterplan for the project area (with core framework principles).

The Visioning and integrated masterplan report that was produced and delivered to the Programme in June 2019 presents both a collation of existing data and suggested design proposals.

The report identifies broader opportunities at the catchment scale, a deeper analysis of issues along the River Leven and specific design principles for the Connectivity Project. From this point on, more informed conversations can be had with the community, stakeholders and the project partners.
