The Jerah property extends over some 1,000ha on the eastern side of Menstrie Glen and is subject to a proposal to establish a large woodland.
In accordance with the Scottish Government's strategy to mitigate against climate change, the site has been carefully assessed to accommodate a variety of woodland types, including productive conifers, native broadleaves and mixed amenity woodland, in an attractive and functional design.
This includes retaining a significant proportion of the site as open ground and as designed open space within the woodland - with the objectives of protecting archaeology remains, retaining existing walking routes, and maintaining important habitats associated with watercourses.
As part of the consultation process to facilitate the project, the woodland designers, UPM Tilhill, are seeking the views of users and interested parties, to identify opportunities and constraints to be further accommodated in the design of the woodland.
A drop-in consultation meeting for any interested parties or individuals will be held on Tuesday 18th December at Dumyat Centre main hall, from 4.00pm to 6.30pm to which all are welcome.
