Callander Landscape Partnership makes progress

Over the last year (2016/17) significant progress has been made with the Callander Landscape Partnership.

This community led partnership, of which the National Park Authority is the lead public body, plays an important role in:

  • improving Callander as a visitor destination
  • improving the accessibility of the area’s heritage and recreational resources,
  • conservation work preserving dark skies, restoring river banks, wildflower meadows, native woodland and parkland features,
  • improving the information base about the area
  • and developing local knowledge and skills to ensure that the legacy of the project is secured.

It will also help deliver on the 2011 Charrette aspiration to make Callander the outdoor capital of the National Park and compliments many other National Park or partner projects – including the Stirling City Deal, Active Travel Improvements and Community Action Planning.

The Heritage Lottery Fund has committed over £1.5 million of Stage One funding in principle to this five year project with over £500,000 required in match funding. The partnership will submit their bid for Stage Two funding in August with a decision expected in December.

Good early progress has been made to secure match funding, with the Community Hydro Scheme confirming £50,000, and various potential sources of funding identified.
