Balmaha Forest work to start in February

At the BCC Meeting on Monday 30th January, David Robertson from the Forestry Commission advised us that work on the Balmaha Forest will be starting within the next 3 weeks and will continue until the end of March.  This news on long awaited works was much appreciated.

Sadly it was David's last piece of news for us as he is retiring and will be replaced by Will Huckerby.  The Councillors would like to take this opportunity to thank David for his support over the last year..

Buchanan CC Byelaws Meeting with NPA

In line with the formal process, Buchanan Community Council objected to the proposed revocation of the existing East Loch Lomond Camping Byelaws 2011 and their replacement with the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park Camping Management Byelaws 2017.

The Community Council was invited to meet with the National Park Authority on 21st December 2016 to discuss the objection.

Our report of the meeting is attached along with a copy of the changes the National Park Authority wished us to make to the document.  Click the 'Read More' link below to access the files.
