Glentana Mill Consultation

Published on:


November 2020

The future of the former Glentana Mill site in Alva is the subject of a public consultation, launched this week.

The online consultation, which opens on 25 November and is run by the Council in partnership with Architecture and Design Scotland, seeks to gather views on potential uses for the site, such as housing.

This exercise will build on previous consultation with the community undertaken in 2019 leading to the streetscape improvement works which have been carried out on Brook Street and are now planned for Stirling Street.  

The consultation is a questionnaire based on the Place Standard tool, which can help support the design and delivery of successful places, helping to create good-quality places where people want to live. 

Place Convenor Councillor Craig Holden, said: “The views of local people are important in helping shape these future plans. We’d like to hear from people with local knowledge which will help the Council to make good decisions about the former Glentana site and target our resources.”

The Glentana Mill was built in 1873 as the Dalmore Works and specialised in the production of shawls, tweeds and tailor made ladieswear. The current single storey building is all that remains of a much larger complex and dates from the 1940s. In the 1990s the building was home to the Mill Trail Visitors Centre and was vacated in January 2019 when the then tenant relocated.
