The Slieve Gullion summit to North Cairn project is implemented through The Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership Scheme. The LPS is part of the Heritage Lottery Fund’s programme to conserve and enhance some of the region’s most treasured landscapes. The LPS runs from September 2015 until August 2018.
The total budget for this project is £123,420
This project aims to mitigate erosion of Slieve Gullion SAC/ASSI caused by recreational use, and raise awareness of sustainable repair techniques to profile best practice landscape management. This project will deliver on these aims by:
1. Repairing the degraded paths by using sustainable path techniques to accommodate the existing high level of use and to provide for predicted increase in use. This will allow restoration of the damaged habitat and will prevent future damage.
2. Profiling sustainable erosion control techniques through the website/press/training volunteers/engagement with user groups, etc.
