No to Theme Park on the shores of Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs is a world class National Park which brings so much to people’s lives and and to the local and Scottish economy. It appears on Scottish culture throughout the centuries, in song, folklore and history. It has to be protected; something which was demonstrated by the banning of non permitted wild camping in the summer, in order to reduce the environmental impact of too many visitors.

Now, developers want to build a Flamingoland Water Park on the shores of this world famous Loch, including a large hotel, a monorail and a spa. This will be catastrophic for the ecosystem. Please do not allow this to be built in this unique and irreplaceable area of outstanding natural beauty and ecological importance.

Why is this important?

The countryside around the Loch is irreplaceable. That is why the park authorities are hugely careful about caring for the area and they actively encourage visitors to the park to do so too. Building a massive, commercial visitor attraction in the area will bring massive pollution, increased human and vehicle traffic and invasive building work to an area with limited infrastructure (unless the natural environment is ripped apart to build more roads etc...), which will irreparably damage a protected area, with a unique ecosystem.
