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:
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.
