This report, produced for the partnership by Bell Ingram Chartered Surveyors, investigates quarried and recycled materials supplied across Scotland and their uses for path construction. PDF 4.75mb

The report investigates traditional materials and the latest recycled materials used in path construction. The study involved interviews with suppliers across Scotland to gauge availability, relative cost and suitability for pathwork. The study also involved interviews with path providers across Scotland to determine which materials were the best and what new and innovative materials have been used. A series of Case Studies gives project details, costs and outcomes. See also the list of Suppliers downloadable separately.

This document draws on evidence based around areas of our work that contribute to the Scottish Government’s Strategic Objectives, National Outcomes and National Indicators as well as the delivery of individual local authority Single Outcome Agreements. 

Single Outcome Agreements (SOA) have been in place since 2008 and the first reporting phase is due in the autumn of 2010. In 2008, Paths for All prepared a reference document to assist Access Officers and Access Managers in securing resources for path network development and promotion.

This updated document is a resource for a wide range of users involved in various policy areas such as outdoor access, transport, health, social regeneration and community projects. 

The tables set out the various national indicators, national outcomes and the strategic objective areas; the evidence in support of these; and the contribution that walking and path networks can make. The use of the evidence need not be restricted to SOAs but can also support funding applications and the development of projects at a community and local authority level.

In summary, this reference table is a tool to help demonstrate that outdoor access development helps meet the outcomes and indicators in SOAs. It should also help shape priorities and indicators in future revisions of SOAs. The reference tables will also be of interest to Community Planning Partnership Co-ordinators, Planners, Greenspace Officers, Cycling Officers, Health Walk Co-ordinators etc.

Paths for All hopes that this document will be a useful resource as you develop outdoor access in your area.
