Thank you for help­ing save Gil­lies Hill

Stirling Observer - - SCHOOL NEWS -

It is with de­light and re­lief that I write, fol­low­ing the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s Re­porter de­ci­sion to re­ject the plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion sub­mit­ted by Pat­ter­son’s Quar­ries - an enor­mous vic­tory for the sma’ folk, the com­mu­nity, the wildlife and land­scape of Cam­bus­bar­ron and Stir­ling.

The com­mu­nity of Cam­bus­bar­ron and sur­round­ing area came to­gether in a pow­er­ful and pur­pose­ful way, be­ing suc­cess­ful in many chal­lenges since the threat of the re­ac­ti­va­tion of Mur­rayshall Quarry was re­alised in 2007. This chal­lenge from Pat­ter­son’s Quar­ries has been, by far, the most sig­nif­i­cant, but the case the com­mu­nity ar­gued, has been suc­cess­fully up­held.

This is a huge vic­tory but there re­mains a threat to Gil­lies Hill. We must re­main vig­i­lant.

Thanks to every­one who par­tic­i­pated in the fight to Save Gil­lies Hill.

Susan McGill, chair­per­son Save Gil­lies Hill
