The Tay Landscape Partnership aims to celebrate the natural and historic environments of the upper Tay estuary and lower Strathearn. We are planning a range of projects to conserve and enhance some of the natural and built features that make this landscape unique. We hope these projects will also improve understanding of these features and their significance, both locally and nationally. The Partnership area extends over 200 sq km and includes the Carse of Gowrie, parts of the Sidlaws and the Ochils, as well as Moncreiffe Hill and lower Strathearn.
Tayside Biodiversity Partnership
The Tayside Biodiversity Action Plan has two main aims: to co-ordinate existing actions, as well as initiating and co-ordinating new ones; and to conserve and enhance the region’s biodiversity, taking into account both local and national priorities. This is not just the task of government - it concerns everyone. We are all responsible for our actions and the impacts we have on our local surroundings.
