Changes have been made to Flamingo Land's controversial £30 million leisure development proposals on the shores of Loch Lomond at Balloch.

Details of the changes have been published by planning chiefs at Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

They include the extension of Woodbank House to form 15 residential flats and an increased number of proposed lodges and bothies at the house from 28 to 50.

However, the number of proposed houses has been reduced from 20 to six.

Use of the proposed boathouse on the promontory at Drumkinnon has been changed from self-catering to storage/water based recreation and changes are also proposed to the extent of development at the pierhead.

The proposed tourism and leisure centre at West Riverside and Woodbank House, registered as valid last May, has caused huge controversy, with opponents arguing the development is not in fitting with the loch's sensitive environment.

The application, for planning permission in principle, includes holiday lodge accommodation, a hotel, bunkhouse, housing and leisure and recreational facilities.

Petitions against Flamingo Land's plans received thousands of signatures and representations have also flooded into to the park as planning authority.

The park's website states: "This application is currently in the planning assessment phase.

"However this process has been paused since August 2018 as we have been waiting to receive further information requested from the applicant to allow us to conclude our assessment. Representations have continued to be received and recorded.

"We have now received the information requested from the applicant.

"While considering the request for the additional information the national park authority needed, the applicants have also amended elements of their original proposals. This is not a new application.

"The application description has been updated, however the new information forms part of the original application.

"Please note that all representations already received will continue to be considered as part of the planning assessment.

"However, there’s now a further opportunity to comment on the proposal in light of the new information."

The planning application including the new information can be viewed on the park's e-planning portal using reference 2018/0133/PPP.

All responses and comments will be taken into account.
