Eco Centre

Eglinton Country Park is on its way to receiving a Green Flag award by becoming a registered Eco Centre.

Achieving Eco Centre status is about ensuring the day to day running of the facility is carried out with as little impact on the environment as possible and encourages visitors to become more environmentally friendly. So far we have:

  • created an Eco code (PDF 113Kb)
  • had an Energy Audit carried out by the Business Environment Partnership
  • set up a committee of staff to progress the Eco Centre
  • reduced water consumption by fitting push taps and timed urinal flush controls in all of our facilities
  • monitored our water and electricity meters on a weekly basis
  • set up a staff recycling facility
  • set up a composting area
  • created an Eco Centre evaluation form

Our plans are to:

  • fit motion detector lighting in all buildings
  • compost all of our green waste
  • sell Fair Trade products in the Café
  • compost all café kitchen waste
  • install a renewable energy source in the visitor centre
  • provide Eglinton Country Park bags for life in the visitor centre
  • create a recycling facility for events

Please take time to complete our Eco Centre Evaluation Form (PDF 89Kb). Email completed forms to eglintoncountrypark@north-ayrshire.gov.uk
