Bid for new for­est tracks

The Arran Banner - - News -

The Forestry Com­mis­sion on Ar­ran has sub­mit­ted two plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tions to North Ayr­shire Coun­cil for the con­struc­tion of two ac­cess tracks which are to be used to haul tim­ber from ap­proved clear fell sites.

The first of the two ap­pli­ca­tions is for the con­struc­tion of a new 400m-long ac­cess track with a turn­ing point and a pass­ing place at Clauch­land Hill, Cor­riegills. The sec­ond slightly longer track mea­sur­ing 570m long, also with a turn­ing point but with two pass­ing places, is be­ing re­quested for a site north of Cno­can Wood, Brod­ick.

Con­sul­ta­tions with Scot­tish Na­tional Her­itage by the ap­pli­cant have in­di­cated that they are sat­is­fied that the pro­posal will not im­pact upon the Ar­ran Moors Spe­cial Pro­tec­tion Area. The ap­pli­ca­tions are cur­rently pend­ing con­sid­er­a­tion by North Ayr­shire Coun­cil.
