The Valley Renewables Group is applying to the Scottish Land Fund to raise the funds to purchase land at Carron Valley from the Forestry Commission. If successful, we hope to create a multipurpose Base to benefit the whole community.
There will be an update on the results of the survey before the Carron Valley Community Council meeting at 7pm on Wednesday 1 February at SEBN Chartershall, Fairhill Road. Whins of Milton. Stirling. FK7 0LL
Here is a link to a summary: Carron Valley Summary of Findings and Recommendations Draft v4 21-12-16
And the draft final report: Carron Valley Community Base Feasibility Study FINAL 21-12-16
Summary of the Project
The land to be purchased is 21 hectares of mature and restocked woodland at the entrance to the Carron Valley Forest, just off the B818 Denny – Fintry Road and adjacent to the existing main visitor car park. The land could be managed by the community to create new paths, wetlands and outdoor activities, improving the access and natural environment.
The proposed building would be owned by the community and be an energy efficient new-build close to the existing carpark and suitable for use by local people and visitors. It could be a catalyst for more activity in the local area, providing meeting space, a café, local and visitor information and room for events and workshops.
We look forward to hearing your views.
