Restoration Project

We believe the proposed quarrying project provides an opportunity to complement the character of the World Heritage Site and the wider historic parkland and landscape character of this area of Clyde Valley

 

 

We have framed our proposals in a way that will not just ensure high quality restoration of land that has been quarried but will also significantly enhance the declining landscape of the Bonnington Parkland.

We believe there is an opportunity to complement the character of the World Heritage Site and the wider historic parkland and landscape character of this area of Clyde Valley. This will include the re-establishment of the Bonnington Parkland structure planting with avenues of trees.

Given permission, we will consolidate the restoration of the existing quarry area with the enhancement of the degraded land to the west so that the two areas can be assimilated into a distinct landscape. We also plan reinstate the historic public access to the Falls of Clyde through the Bonnington Estate and provide a visitors’ car park.

Our plans include specific proposals for agriculture, ecology and public access which together add up to a major boost to the site itself and to the wider area.

The proposals include:

  • Replanting beech avenues
  • Re-establishing woodland blocks
  • Planting of individual stately parkland trees
  • Re-creating formal paths and rides
  • Re-constructing a boundary walk
  • Habitat creation and promotion of biodiversity
  • Replicating glacial drainage features.
