Lauriston Castle Gardens Management Plan Feedback

Closed 8 Feb 2018

Opened 7 Nov 2017


A management plan for Lauriston Castle Gardens is currently being produced. This management plan will help to direct the future management and maintenance of the gardens and features within it.

Before producing the management plan for Lauriston Castle Gardens, we are seeking feedback on the current strengths and weaknesses of the gardens to help us identify areas and opportunities for development. These will be incorporated into the management plan and will be used to create a supporting development plan for the gardens, covering the period of the management plan 2018-2023.
