These include the creation of greenbelt land that contains 250,000 fast growing willow and alder trees. This wood is harvested every four to seven years and is either used to make chipboard or used in biomass generators to make electricity. This project is known as the Hallside Renewable Energy Park. This has created jobs and raw materials for furniture and electricity.
These include new homes for working families within easy commuting distance of Motherwell, Hamilton and, of course, Glasgow.
These include new greenbelt land created from the ashes of the old steelworks and associated slag heaps.
