National Park LDP Charrette
National Park LDP Charrette

7N Architects were appointed by the Scottish Government and the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Authority (LLTNPA) to integrate design and consultation from the outset of the Local Development Plan process with a series of workshops in villages and towns throughout the National Park, altogether comprising the National Park LDP Charrette.

 

Design proposals for the settlements of Drymen / Balmaha; Aberfoyle; Arrochar / Tarbet / Succoth and Tyndrum were developed through a staged process of discussion, concept design and feedback, working with the local communities, relevant agencies, landowners and the LLTNPA. Local initiatives were also framed within a Park wide strategy that aimed to weave together the key attributes of each place into a cohesive strategy for strengthening the visitor economy, which will play a major role in the long term economic wellbeing of these rural communities.

 

The output of the Charrette will be integrated with the National Park's Local Development Plan, but there are also strong overlaps with local community action plans and strategies for visitor engagement in the National Park.
