Lambhill land management plan

Lambhill is located immediately southeast of Blairingone in Perth and Kinross, adjacent to the A977. The site covers approximately 360 hectares, 200 of which was acquired in 2009 and is largely comprised of restored ground which was open cast mined during the 1980's and early 1990's, and which has been recently planted following extensive remedial works. The adjacent ground around Barnhill farm was acquired more recently in 2014, and was previously given over to agriculture.

A management plan for Lambhill was formally approved in 2011, but following acquisition of the neighbouring ground, we are taking the opportunity to produce a new land management plan that covers the entire site, and would like to know what you think.
