Forestry frus­tra­tion

The Arran Banner - - Letters -

Sir, Last week, the Forestry Com­mis­sion, with­out no­tice, banned fish­ing on Loch Gar­bad un­til the end of Oc­to­ber as they are build­ing ac­cess roads, pre­sum­ably for wood ex­trac­tion.

This de­ci­sion, in the height of the hol­i­day and fish­ing sea­sons, is dis­grace­ful. The FC must have know for months about their plans, and sim­ple cour­tesy would dic­tate that the Ar­ran An­gling As­so­ci­a­tion should have been given ad­e­quate no­tice. Sub­scrip­tions have been paid – for the loss of more than half a sea­son! Sadly, they will use the Health and Safety ar­gu­ment and mem­bers have no re­course but to put up with this high-handed be­hav­iour. John N E Rankin Whit­ing Bay
