Well designed and maintained paths help everyone to be active, every day.

We offer technical advice and guidance to community organisations, community groups, community councils, development trusts and access professionals to help them to create, promote and maintain safe, welcoming community paths and active routes for everyone.

We can provide technical advice and guidance on:

  • Planning and developing path projects
  • Surveying and designing paths
  • Preparing contract documentation for tenders
  • Path construction best practice, incl. surface selection, bridges, access barriers, signage, etc.

We aim to visit potential applicants to the Ian Findlay Path Fund before applications are submitted.
