The Leven Legacy Project
Project Category: Registered charity
This is a multi-dimensional project which aims to achieve a lasting and meaningful legacy for the communities of Dumbarton and Alexandria, which are located within the geographical area known as the Vale of Leven. The golden thread which links all of these sub-projects together is the River Leven which runs approximately 7.5 miles from Loch Lomond at Balloch into the Clyde at Dumbarton.
The Leven Legacy project aims to reverse decades, if not generations, of neglect by improving the water quality and in-stream habitat of the 5 identified feeder streams that enter the Leven and the 2 that flow through Dumbarton, thus enhancing fish stocks and improving the local environment. Opening up neglected and derelict land to the community, by completely regenerating a neglected and disused path on the east bank of the Leven so encouraging walking, off road cycling and angler access. We will also initiate a bespoke green learning, schools project, which will extend into a summer holiday initiative.
