Corrog Wood and Greyabbey Community Trails

The Challenge

To prepare concept trail design and obtaining planning permission for community walking trails in Corrog Wood, Portaferry and around the Abbey in Greyabbey in the Ards Peninsula.


The Role

As part of a previous project to review the Ards Peninsula Community Trail Network Feasibility Study, Corrog Wood and Greyabbey Abbey Trails were identified as community trails to be taken forward to develop to concept trail design stage and obtain planning permission. The project comprises:

  • Undertaking site visits and supporting desk research to identify an appropriate route which:
  • Ensuring the trails adhere to the Principles and Standards for Trail Development in Northern Ireland and that they complement their natural surroundings through considering the existing and future usage of the sites
  • Developing Trail Prescription Documents for each site
  • Consulting with statutory consultees
  • Taking both proposals through the planning system
