The Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park Authority, working with Sustrans, engaged Alan Jones Associates to consult with residents of Lochearnhead about their future needs and aspirations particularly around walking, cycling and increasing opportunities to improve the infrastructure to enhance, improve or provide more facilities for the village.
The primary focus for this project is to complement the re-purposing of the railway line path from St Fillans by developing ideas and designs to improve the public realm within Lochearnhead for cycling, walking and wheeling, as well as outlining options for public realm and community space improvements.
The project was delivered through an extensive programme of community and stakeholder engagement, including a household survey, a placemaking survey, school sessions, a ‘future walk’, stakeholder meetings, and an online interactive theme map and survey. From this programme of engagement.
Four key themes were identified:
From these themes, key projects have been assessed and appraised, with the report recommending key community expressed priorities. The next steps are to use this report as a basis of considering how we might best move forward to develop some of the priority projects further.
