Loch Lomond resort backers withdraw plans amid public outcry
September 18 2019
The developer behind plans to erect a £30m leisure resort in Balloch has formally notified Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park that it has withdrawn its application amid a fierce backlash from opponents.
Lomond Banks would have delivered a mixed-use tourism destination for the town with a slew of new amenities, accommodation and infrastructure improvements but drew 57,000 objections concerned at over development.
In a formal notification of their withdrawal Lomond Banks director, Andy Miller said: “Our priority now is to fully understand concerns, gather the necessary information and dispel some of the myths that continue to circulate around our ambitions for the site.
“It is only at this point, we will consider re-submitting our plans to ensure decision makers will be able to take a fully informed decision on this important application.”
The decision means a planned site visit, pre-determination hearing and public meeting have now all been cancelled pending a broader review.
