APRS News

News

With the centenary coming up we have been looking into how we can explore the contents of the APRS archive, ensure they are given to a proper archive which can look after them properly, and make some of the key documents available online for others to read. Here Kat tells the story of the serendipity which rediscovered a fascinating body of research on APRS’s history.

The Eighth part of our Director Kat’s fundraising walk around the Green Belt of Greater Glasgow. This time, a very short jaunt from Cleland to Carfin in North Lanarkshire via one of the largest derelict sites in Europe, Ravenscraig.

What We Said

APRS has responded to a Government consultation on the Human Rights Bill for Scotland and we welcome the inclusion of a Right to a Healthy Environment. This could be transformative for communities challenging unsustainable, polluting and damaging activities and developments in their area.

News

APRS today is lending our support for the Better Buses for Strathclyde Campaign. Excellent public transport networks are the foundation of a fairer society and an essential part of reducing our carbon emissions. We need far better public transport provision for people who live on the edges of towns and cities and in rural neighbourhoods which means, in most cases, better buses.

The latest episode of Kat’s fundraising walk around the Green Belt of Greater Glasgow. This section takes her from Greenhead Moss Community Nature Park on the outskirts of Wishaw down Garrion Gill, an SSSI and an impassable jungle.

What We Said

APRS has responded to the consultation on the Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill. In summary our view is that the bill, as it stands, needs considerable improvement if it is to drive Scotland’s transition towards a circular economy. Waste should be seen as a systemic issue, and we need greater provisions for producer responsibility rather than the blame lying solely on individuals.
