When good neighbours become good friends
Here at Crieff Hydro we like to play a part in all things local, wether that be using local supplier, tasty seasonal ingredients in our menus or helping out in the community.
Stephen Leckie - Chief Executive Officer
Crieff Hydro is not only the largest employer in Strathearn, it attracts thousands of visitors from Scotland, the UK and the world to the Perthshire area each year (The resort recently even hosted the Miss World event).
We are committed to continuing our support of the local community and here are a few things we do:
Stephen Leckie is Chairman of the Crieff Community Council; Chairman of the Scottish Tourist Forum; President and Director of Perthshire Chamber of Commerce and Chairman of the Scottish Tourist Leadership Group, which is a reflection of his commitment to supporting and developing Scottish Tourism at a national and local level and in sharing ideas, creative innovation and entrepreneurial spirit to support other businesses in the area.
Crieff and Strathearn Tourism Association
We are committed to driving Scottish tourism and this of course includes tourism to the local areas surrounding Crieff. We currently work alongside lots of other local businesses and have most recently project managed the launch of a new tourism website to cross sell a range of different local businesses (www.crieffandstrathearn.co.uk/)
Crieff Country Markets
We help out in kind by Crieff Hydro sponsors Crieff Country Markets in kind by providing resource. The markets are held on the second Saturday of each month in the town square and the company supports and encourages local producers and retailers to sell their goods by offering space.
Crieff Hydro likes to support local businesses from supplying tasty cakes from Campbells bakery and water from Highland Spring.
We also like to promote all things Scottish so regularly mention some great Perthshire events and experiences, including the Famous Grouse Experience, the Breadalbane Explorer, local walks and areas of interest.
Crieff Hydro is proposing a sustainable development of a 100 bed care home/assisted living accommodation (Class 8), up to 200 holiday lodges, up to 500 sqm of retail/farm shop (Class 1) and café (Class 3) and 1000 sqm of leisure facilities (Class 11) comprising swimming pool and gymnasium, plus associated vehicular access off the A85, pedestrian and cycle routes, landscaping, open space and drainage.
The proposed development site is located to the north of the A85 and west of the village of Gilmerton. A public exhibition was held on 7th November 2011 to let you tell us what you think. Your comments let us learn a few things before we submitted the next stage of planning on 25th Janaury 2013.
