The Trust has been looking at the idea of taking over Silvercraigs Caravan Park from our local council. Our initial idea is to contract out the running of the site to Kirkcudbright Swimming Pool. Swimming pool staff are already trained in things like health and safety and working with the public so it would be a straightforward transition. Any surplus profits would be used on Development Trust projects. We have secured development funding £7600 from the lottery. This will allow us to consult with the community, carry out a condition survey of the park and develop a business plan.
We’ll keep you informed of any progress on the project.
