Balfron Development Trust (or Balfron Community Futures Development Trust to give its full name) was established 14 years ago. We are a company and a charity and have a wide remit to carry out activities which support the local community.
Our purposes are:
The maintenance and development of multi-use paths in and around Balfron with the object of improving recreational facilities in the surrounding area.
The protection and conservation of the fresh water habitat and nearby semi-natural habitats that support species of national and international importance within the Endrick Water Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Special Area of Conservation(SAC) through the control of non-native invasive species and by increasing awareness of the value and vulnerability of the SSSI/SAC.
The advancement of citizenship and community cohesion by encouraging local residents and other community groups to become involved in the work of the organisation or by making use of an expanding network of paths
