Plans for the Cove Community Windfarm on the Rosneath Peninsula, for which h+m developed the design layout and undertook the LVIA, have had to be dropped due to problems securing the agreement of landowners involved. This is disappointing news for all involved, especially members of the local community that have worked so hard in bringing this together.
h+m were invited by ENVIRON to join their team bidding for the Cefn Coch Transmisison Line Project. This is a major transmission line routing and assessment project in central Wales.
We're delighted to report that both Forth Valley College campuses at Alloa and Stirling received Civic Trust Awards in the ceremony at Cardiff last night. These are amongst the most significant awards in the UK – only 32 being awarded on the night, 4 in Scotland. Furthermore, Stirling took the Special Award for Scotland. The Civic Trust Awards are not simply about architecture – they recognise the benefit that each project brings to the community through the enhancement of the civic realm. Our client on this project was Reiach & Hall Architects, lead designer and architect.

Chalara dieback of ash is a serious disease of ash trees caused by a fungus called Chalara fraxinea (C. fraxinea), including its sexual stage,Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus (H. pseudoalbidus).
The disease causes leaf loss and crown dieback in affected trees, and usually leads to tree death. Visit the Forestry Commission website for more information on identifying affected trees.
The Forestry Commission have also produced a free Smartphone App (iOS or Android) that allows you to report affected trees
