Public to have a say in Craigforth Campus transformation plans

PLANS have been revealed for a major investment programme to redevelop Craigforth Campus in Stirling.

Ambassador Group has announced details of two online public consultation events that will take place on Thursday 7 May and Friday 8 May. The team behind the proposals will participate in a web discussion around the scheme, which could see the 49.5-hectare site transformed into a mixed-use facility.

Feedback will be used to help shape the final plans, ahead of the formal submission of the two planning applications to Stirling Council.

Ambassador Group said it will submit two planning applications following ‘extensive’ consultation with existing occupiers and planning officials, that will see the creation of a new purpose built office building in the north of the site plus a wider masterplan featuring hotel, residential, leisure and retail facilities.

The ‘ultimate vision’ is to create a sense of place that will open up access for all through the creation of a new campus set against the riverside backdrop and surrounding landscape.

Chris Richardson, investment director for Ambassador Group said, “Our commitment to the redevelopment of Craigforth Campus and indeed the Stirlingshire area remains stronger than ever. We believe there is a real opportunity here to reimagine the entire site and bring with it many positive benefits and opportunities to existing tenants and indeed the wider local community.

“When approaching these plans, we’ve very much looked towards future proofing the campus for years to come. Every stage of this process has been carefully considered and we look forward to moving a step closer as we engage the local community and begin the consultation process.”
