Lomond Banks: Deal to ease road access concerns agreed

Lomond Banks has finalised an agreement with Transport Scotland to help address apprehension around potential road impacts within the area.

With more than two years of consultations and engagement, the team behind the £40m resort on the banks of Loch Lomond have refined plans in an attempt to reassure the community, according to Insider.co.uk.

The latest submission contains a recently updated summer transport assessment, highlighting the minimal impact on existing roads, alongside supporting potential upgrades to the A82’s Stoneymollan roundabout.

The agreement with Transport Scotland, which would form a Section 48 legal agreement, should the planning application progress, has been in discussions since last summer.

Having already created the Lomond Promise, a voluntary undertaking which legally binds the developer into a number of obligations – including no zero-hour contracts, real living wages, job and training opportunities for local people, a commitment to 24/7 access to woodland paths and national walkways, as well as protecting and enhancing Drumkinnon Wood – the developers hope the Transport Scotland agreement will reinforce the commitment to Balloch and the surrounding area.
