Fife Coast & Countryside Trust has another great year

Wednesday, February 29, 2012
Fife Coast & Countryside Trust has had another successful year with a number of significant achievements.

The Trust’s progress in 2010/2011 was recently reported to Fife Council’s Housing & Communities Committee.

Fife Coast & Countryside Trust is continuing to work throughout Fife and achievements have been made in key areas including conservation, access and education.

During 2010/2011, Trust played a key role in delivering many projects that protect habitats and species.

Highlights include the Fife Red Squirrel Project, Action for Aspen Tree Project and West Sands Dune Restoration.

As well as carrying out repair work to the managed coastline because of damage caused by a number of severe storms, the western extension of the Fife Coastal Path from North Queensferry towards Kincardine was completed, the Welcome Ports initiative has grown with almost 50 businesses agreeing to lend support and a number of path improvements have been carried out.

The Trust has also delivered a number of education projects aimed at promoting a greater understanding of biodiversity and countryside issues.

These include the Meadies Midgies, Forest Kindergarten and other open days and events.

Other notable achievements include working with several partners leading to the successful Stage One bid to the Heritage Lottery Funding for the Living Lomonds Landscape Partnership.

£90,000 has already been allocated and a Stage Two bid will be submitted towards the end of this year.

Another success story was the Harbourmaster’s House in Dysart which attracted 16,000 visitors in 2010/2011 despite another wet summer.

The café and visitor services continue to be a popular attraction for users of the Fife Coastal Path and visitors to Dysart Harbour.

Councillor Brian Goodall, Chair of the Housing & Communities Committee, said: “The Fife Coast & Countryside Trust has managed to achieve a great deal once again and it was great to hear about the different projects going on across Fife.

“The Trust has many positive challenges ahead including the Stage Two bid for HLF funding and the expansion of the Big Green Footprint scheme.

“By focusing on priorities including supporting, encouraging and facilitating outdoor recreation in Fife the Trust will ensure it will be in the best possible position to tackle the financial challenges that lie ahead and build on yet another strong performance.“

Amanda McFarlane, chief executive for Fife Coast and Countryside Trust, said: “The Trust has had a very successful year, it has delivered a number of initiatives and projects which directly impact on the biodiversity and countryside of Fife.

“The work of the Trust is essential in maintaining Fife’s position as the number one outdoor destination in Scotland – this popularity is vital for the region’s economic sustainability. Looking forward, despite challenges to income streams, the Trust will look to focus on sites which deliver high-quality outdoor facilities which both residents and visitors can enjoy.”
