There is a growing network of paths groups across Perth & Kinross engaged in practical work to keep the paths in their own areas open. Each group is supported by a Greenspace Ranger.
These groups have taken on a role in keeping up the paths in their own areas:
- Undertaking practical work to repair and maintain paths for walkers, riders and cyclists to use
- Promoting their paths and assisting us in waymarking them as part of the Core Paths Implementation Plan
- Carrying out path audits
- Taking the lead on more ambitious projects to improve paths or build new ones where the need has been identified locally
