Consultation Event – November 2021

Flamingo Land, the team behind Lomond Banks, has scheduled a second round of consultation events to allow further engagement on its development plans as it moves forward with its application for Woodbank and West Riverside in Balloch.

The online portal above is once again open for the community, from Monday 22nd November for two weeks, showing the ongoing progress the application is making ahead of the planning submission in February 2022.

A face-to face event has also been arranged and will take place on Thursday 25th November from 2pm to 7pm at Lomond Parish Hall, Balloch.

The team behind the proposed new world-class tourist development will be on-hand throughout the in-person event to talk through the plans with the wider community and gather further feedback on its latest proposals for the area.

This forms part of the extended consultation period which started in September, designed to provide stakeholders, members of the local community and other interested parties with a number of opportunities to engage – with all opinions and thoughts welcomed by the Lomond Banks team – to help shape their plans ahead of its estimated February submission, with initial feedback from this segment of the to be reviewed on Friday 10th December.

This second consultation will also cover updates on the plans following the first round of consultation and the feedback received from the community in September.

Key focus areas which have been identified during this initial period are the Pierhead area, integration with the community of Balloch, an emphasis on fair work, education and training as well as traffic and transport.

Throughout the extended consultation process, the Lomond Banks team hope to convey its overall vision for the sustainable £40m development, highlight its commitment to the community, local businesses and employability, whilst providing a platform for engagement and feedback.
