Bringing in the Rhins – Have Your Say!

Bringing in the Rhins – come along to the Stranraer drop-in sessions to have your say.

With its 10th anniversary approaching in 2022, the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere is reviewing its geographical boundaries and considering ‘Bringing in the Rhins’. Come along to our drop-in sessions in Stranraer on Tuesday 9 November to have your say!

We are discussing ‘Bringing in the Rhins’ now, as Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere has its 10-yearly review with UNESCO in 2022.  The Biosphere is working with Solway Firth Partnership to talk to as many people as possible about the expansion proposal.

Drop-in sessions will be held on Tuesday 9 November at: –

Dumfries and Galloway College, Stranraer campus from 12.00noon to 2.00pm

Ryan Centre, Stranraer from 3.00pm to 5.00pm

Both sessions are open to the public so come along and have a chat with us! We can answer any questions you might have about the designation and what it might mean to you and your business. You will then have the opportunity to complete the survey, either online or by providing us with your feedback.

The Biosphere team are keen that as many local residents as possible can participate in the consultation. If you aren’t able to come to a drop-in session, why not take part in an online survey at
