Residents of Helensburgh and Lomond are being invited to a public meeting held by the Scottish Land Commission.

The commission is continuing its successful series of public meetings this year, and the sixth in the series will take place in Balloch.

Officially established in April last year, the commission is holding an informal public meeting to give people the opportunity to find out more about the work of the organisation and to meet with commissioners.

Chair of the Scottish Land Commission, Andrew Thin, said: “The commissioners and I are really keen to let people know more about the work the commission has started to undertake and find out what they think the priorities for land reform should be.

"The public meeting is also an opportunity to find out more about land reform and the benefits it can bring to you and your community.

“This is one of a series of public meetings taking place across Scotland throughout the year from Durness to Stirling, Ayr to Huntly and we hope to meet as many people as possible.

"I would encourage everyone to attend and make the most of the opportunity to meet with us to discuss the land reform agenda.

"It is important that all voices are heard and we work together to make the most of our land.”

The event is free and tea and coffee will be provided.

The event is being held at the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Authority in Balloch on Thursday, April 19 at 7pm.
