A Local Stakeholder Panel has been established comprising 39 representatives from different areas and interests across the study area. The project is intended to help demonstrate the value and benefits of taking a holistic approach to land use planning.
The Stakeholder Panel met in November and December, and is due to meet again in February. A full list of the Stakeholder Panel members and notes and outputs from the first two meetings are available on the project website.
So far the Panel has focussed on describing and mapping the "benefits" of the Carse, and who benefits from the nature of the area. Detailed maps and descriptions of the benefits will soon be on the project website.
The Panel will meet a further three times, and is working towards developing an Action Plan for the Carse of Stirling, that will be used to identify practical actions for local stakeholders, as well as policy orientated actions for the public sector.
A Facebook page has been set up for people to post photographs or comments about what they like or think is special about the Carse, and what benefits come from the land.
