£30m Flamingo Land plans on show
Plans for a new £30million leisure park on Loch Lomond will go on public display for the first time this week.
The proposals for the controversial development, which were announced last September, will be on display during a two-day exhibition from 1.30pm until 7.30pm on Friday and from 9.30am until 1.30pm on Saturday.
Theme park operator Flamingo Land Ltd – who are behind the proposals for West Riverside in Balloch – are welcoming residents to the two-day event within Unit 7 at Loch Lomond Shores – where they will have the opportunity to quiz those behind the project.
They will also host another event at the Balloch tourist attraction on December 4.
The company, which has attractions in North Yorkshire, submitted their Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) last month, detailing their plans to host the public events.
Flamingo Land Ltd is required to host at least one public event to inform residents on the plans due to the scale of the proposals, which place the project in the “major development” planning category.
These events will allow residents to submit their views on the plans for the site, ahead of Flamingo Land submitting their proposals next year.
If approved the theme park operator will transform the 20-hectare site into an area with lodges, a boutique hotel, hostel and glamping pods as well as “high-quality family-based attractions and restaurants”.
Plans for a 100m viewing tower were included in the most recent plans for the Loch Lomondside development.
