Birks of Aberfeldy Management Plan Public Consultation

Closed 17 Apr 2022

Opened 14 Mar 2022

Feedback updated 2 Dec 2022

We asked

We sought participation in our online survey on the Birks of Aberfeldy Management Plan so as to implement improvement projects and upgrades, as a working partnership with the community over the next 5 years, while seek funding for others.  We also welcomed any other comments, impressions, and suggestions.

You said

After an initial consultation with key stakeholders including the Birks of Aberfeldy Community Group and Nature Scot we received a small number of further responses to this public consultation. Some of this will help inform the implementation of the Plan.

We did

We have begun to implement the items on the actions list featured in the action plan and are applying for funding where possible to supplement insufficient council resources and budgets. Simultaneously we continue with the programming and implementation of larger projects into 2023/24 and beyond, pending budgets.

We are consulting on a new Management Plan for the Birks of Aberfeldy. This Plan will guide our management of the site for the next 5 years and has been drawn up in consultation with the Birks of Aberfeldy Community Group, Nature Scot and others.  We’re consulting now as we would like a broader endorsement of the proposals and action plan set out within the Plan and to improve it by taking on board the views of the wider community.   

Why your views matter

Since 2018 a number of public consultation/stakeholder events and meetings have taken place asking for views on what matters most for the future management of the Birks of Aberfeldy. It has been a long journey to get to this point but these have helped shape the Draft Management Plan published here for your comments.
