Interested in helping the Applecross Community assess the feasibility of a community woodland project?
The Applecross Community Company is considering options for community ownership of a 14.5 acre Sitka Spruce plantation in the heart of the village – which is well used by locals and visitors alike, but has great potential to be so much more.
The purpose of the feasibility study is to help ACC assess the viability and potential options for community ownership of the Torgarve wood, as a means to achieving a range of long term economic, environmental and community benefits.
ACC was awarded funding in October 2019 from Scottish Land Fund (£9,578) for a Community Woodlands feasibility study. The Community Woodlands Association (CWA) are undertaking the feasibility study which started in November. We now have draft report for community consideration, which you can view here.
