How the project was delivered

In 2010, Clackmannanshire Council received £25,250 to undertake the Gartmorn Dam Green Hub Development Study to investigate the most effective means of further developing Gartmorn Dam Country Park as a focus for active travel, environmental education, informal recreation and biodiversity in the Council area. Working in partnership with the Community Woodlands Association, FCS, Clackmannanshire Riders Access Group and private landowners the study outputs provide a framework for the future development of the site and surrounding land in the lead up to its tercentenary in 2013. Assessment of the Dam in relation to criteria for a Green Flag Award has also taken place. The stakeholder workshop brought forward a number of individuals interested in supporting the future development of the park.

In 2011, Clackmannanshire Council used a further grant of £24,750 to upgrade approximately 560 metres of core path providing access to Gartmorn Dam Country Park and woodlands from the deprived community of Sauchie, and to improve signage at the entrance to the Park. The main car park was also resurfaced and a stakeholder meeting was held to develop further proposals for improvements to the Park in advance of its centenary in 2013.
