PS30m LOCH RESORT IS REJECTED; Council unanimous on plans.

Byline: PAUL RODGER reporters@dailyrecord.co.uk

PLANS for a PS30million Scots holiday resort were unanimously rejected by councillors - but the proposals could still go ahead.

The Flamingoland resort at Loch Lomond has also been slated by residents and a Save Loch Lomond group has been formed to object to the proposals.

West Dunbartonshire Council rejected the plans on Wednesday but a decision still needs to be made by the board of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.

The plans, a joint venture between Scottish Enterprise and Yorkshire-based Flamingo Land, feature a water park, 60-bedroom apart-hotel, craft brewery, boat house and leisure centre. Scottish Greens MSP Ross Greer, who started a petition against the plan, said: "This is a huge moment for our campaign. It is the most unpopular planning application in Scottish history." The Scottish Government said they do not comment on live planning cases.

West Dunbartonshire Council said they would submit an objection "to the consultation received from the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority regarding the planning application."
