Kilclief and Strangford Community Trail

Client: Strangford Community Association

The Challenge

A design plan for an off-road coastal walking trail linking Kilclief beach car park and Kilclief GAA club house and associated pitches was developed.  This connected into a proposed cycle path along the A2 Shore Road to form a looped community trail.


The Role

In order to complete the trail design for the 1km section of off-road walking trail along the coast between the beach car park and GAA pitch we:

  • Consulted with landowners, the community and DOE Natural Environment Division (NED)
  • Carried out site visits to complete the trail design
  • Produced a Construction Prescription Document allowing planning applications to be submitted and future Contractors to cost and deliver the works if funding is secured
