As much as we’d like them to, active travel routes don’t just pop up of their own accord. Creating the perfect route takes time (planning, surveys, negotiations, designs…) and money (fundraising). We, at LoMaTR, have been lucky as a lot of effort had already been put into connecting the coastal communities in the Laich of Moray, but we’ve still got 5 miles of path to go to complete the project, and we sure could use your help!
DONATE YOUR TIME
The SCIO is currently seeking new members to help take the Lossiemouth – Hopeman project forward through the design and construction stages. You don’t need to have any experience of building paths, negotiating with landowners, or fundraising (though it would be very helpful if you did) – any time and experience you can contribute would be greatly appreciated.
DONATE SOME MONEY
The Laich of Moray Active Travel Routes SCIO must raise funds to acquire the necessary access and planning permissions before completing the design and commencing construction of the active travel route between Lossiemouth and Hopeman. Fortunately, the Scottish Government, through Sustrans, will provide the bulk of the funding, but only if the Community raises at least 30% of the overall cost. Your donation will help provide the funding we need to take the project forward.
