Birchwood Big Local

Birchwood is a suburb on the west side of Lincoln (see map of the area below). Birchwood Big Local has been awarded £1million of Big Lottery funding to make a lasting and positive difference in our community

Our Team


Birchwood Big Local has formed Birchwood Area Community Land Trust (BACLT) to make it possible to own and lease land buildings on behalf of Big Local and the Birchwood Community - for example, taking on the ownership of Diamond Park on behalf of the local community.


BACLT Website:


On behalf of the people of Birchwood, BACLT took ownership of Diamond Park in 2017. We have installed new play equipment and re-opened it on 22nd October 2018. Phase 2 of installing play equipment for the older children was completed April 2019. Local volunteers open and close the Park daily and help to maintain it. Regular clean up sessions are held for residents to come and help.
