Contractors from Acteon will be onsite this week from Wednesday 13th to carry out the topographic survey for the area surrounding the accessible path route.
This will give a detailed output to aid the design as all ground terrain, elevation, existing route, features and trees over 100mm diameter will be picked up by the laser scanning and recorded to a high level of detail.
Intention is to complete studies during autumn to then progress to tender and funding stages over winter and be ready for construction in Spring/Summer 2024.
The accessible path was part of our Woodland Management Plan approved in 2022 and we’re pleased to be able to be processing this now. We have recently been successful in receiving £5,550 towards this project from Forth Valley & Lomond Local Action Group (LEADER Programme).
There will be community consultation sessions planned to gather views and have an opportunity to ask questions to the project teams too.
