Driven by lead partner within the Deal Stirling Council, the development of the Forthside site currently occupied by the Ministry of Defence will unlock a significant mixed-use expansion opportunity, the scale of which has not been realised in Stirling for a generation. The site, at just over 40 acres, is the largest brown-field site adjacent to the city centre area. This land presents a unique prospect for Stirling to deliver sustainable improvement to combine the ambition of carbon neutral city centre living with dynamic business and leisure space.
The site is strategically located between two of the main travel corridors to the city. Its position affords an exceptional opportunity through Deal, public and partner investment to be unlocked. Providing new access and travel links, enabling enhanced public transport, cycling and active travel corridors. It will integrate ongoing development with the city, offering connection to other areas and enhance routes to leisure and tourism opportunities. Its proximity to Stirling’s district heating system, Rail and Bus Stations will make this one of Stirling’s most ecological developments.
