Town Appearance, Environment and Heritage

Many respondents thought the town centre could be made more attractive – through the community projects to bring back life to the derelict buildings, by supporting the development of attractive shop fronts, and more planting of flowers and trees.  Suggestions were also made to link up and develop attractive green spaces and create green ‘corridors’ through the town and out into the countryside.  MacRosty Park was viewed as a valuable asset in the town but other parks were also identified as needing upgraded or for additional, smaller parks to be created.  The current network of scenic paths was noted as being appreciated locally but people would like them further developed and promoted.  Plans to upgrade the Core Path between Crieff and Comrie are expected to advance soon. Accessibility across path networks was remarked upon regularly to support use by all members of the community.  In general there was seen to be a need and opportunity to develop Crieff as a ‘Sustainable Town’ looking at all aspects of the place and how it could be more ‘eco-friendly’.  Residents often spoke warmly about the history and heritage of Crieff and were ambitious in ideas for more to be made of this – with plans for a Heritage Museum and Heritage Trail in the offing as well as a need for more heritage signage and information.
