Flamingo Land has released its plans for the proposed development at Loch Lomond as the operator seeks “planning permission in principle” for the attraction.
The blueprints include a 60 room hotel, 105 self-catering lodges, 20 houses, a monorail, a brewery, a leisure area, restaurants and retail areas,with the surrounding woodland to be used for forest adventure rides, tree top walks and performance areas.
The planning statement from Flamingo Land claims “the proposals are tasteful tourism focussed development appropriate to the set ting in a national park and are not a theme park that would be incompatible with the location”.
A spokesperson for Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park explained that Flamingo Land’s application is just the first of many before building work can being.
“If the application is approved the applicant will then have to submit further application(s) for detailed aspects of the proposal before any development can take place.
“The application will be assessed against the planning policies and guidance set out in our Local Development Plan and other relevant issues before a report of recommendation is submitted to our Board members for them to consider.
“This recommendation will then be discussed at a public meeting where the National Park Authority Board members will make a decision to either approve or or reject the application.”
