The River Black Devon is in close vicinity of this site and that of H50 and also flows adjacent to the now defunct open cast mine site. The Black Devon unlike the River Devon and other rivers in the Forth system has never been managed as a leisure resource for anglers. With the prospect of developing the H49 and H50 established housing sites and remediation of the open cast site, its potential value as a local leisure resource for Clackmannanshire and its tourism should be exploited. More specifically the stretch of river between the two sites would benefit from riparian habitat improvements and its biodiversity enhanced to enable its management as a controlled brown trout fishery.

In developing these two housing sites and re-establishing the environment of the old mine site action should be taken to conduct detailed ecological and riparian habitat surveys, including the in water species and invertebrate populations. A requirement being placed on the developers to carry out priority improvements to the river, as may be identified by the surveys,.and to take steps to establish population patterns that can subsequently be enhanced by others in accord with current wild fishery conservation practice.
