Project delivered by Forestry and Land Scotland
This project will bring forward (from the anticipated start date of 2024) the revised North Kyle Land Management Plan. The visual appeal of the forest will be significantly enhanced by increasing conifer and broadleaf diversity. The aim is to create a new, lasting and positive inheritance for the area whilst tackling the legacy of an industrialised landscape.
This early review will be a fundamental “root and branch” redesign, which will fully revise the plan and incorporate all of the recent developments, survey and landscape information and public feedback. This is considerably more work than the standard 5 year review and will therefore be extra work, at a different scale with added complexity for the design incorporating extensive landscape and community consultation. Extra layers of community engagement will be required to fully address the CCLP, North Kyle Masterplan and community aspirations; this will require more extensive engagement and will therefore need to be adequately resourced.
