It has been a long-held ambition of the Stanley Development Trust to develop an all-abilities path between Stanley and Luncarty. The new path will provide better community links whilst allowing users to keep active and healthy. In 2016, SDT commissioned a report by P4 Projects to look into the options and opportunities in the area, which then led to the development of a new working partnership with PKCT and Cycling Scotland’s Transport Planning and Engineering (TP&E) in 2020. In September 2020, funding from Sustrans enabled PKCT to commission TP&E to take forward a feasibility study and concept design of two shared-use active travel route options to link the villages of Stanley and Luncarty.
