More than 20,000 objections were lodged over the weekend as part of a campaign to Save Loch Lomond from a proposed Flamingo Land ‘resort’ development, Scottish Greens West Scotland MSP Ross Greer revealed today. 

The campaign recorded an incredible 10,000 objections in the first 24 hours, after its launch on Friday, and has now amassed over 22,000 responses. 

Commenting, Green MSP Ross Greer said: 

“I am grateful to everyone who has backed the community campaign to save Loch Lomond from Flamingo Land’s second attempt at a destructive ‘resort’ development. 

“The volume of responses over the weekend shows just how strongly people feel about protecting our national parks and in particular the world-famous natural landscape of Loch Lomond at one of its most accessible locations. 

“Local residents have repeatedly proposed a range of potential alternative uses for the site which could boost the social and economic wellbeing of the area, maintain easy public access and protect the ancient woodland at Drumkinnon, but site owner Scottish Enterprise has so far been unwilling to deal with anyone other than the Yorkshire theme park operator. 

“There is still time to add your voice and I’d encourage everyone who loves Loch Lomond to make sure you have your say.”
