New Dunoon motorhome and camping site gets go-ahead

National Park planning chiefs have given the go-ahead for a new motorhome and camping site near Dunoon in Argyll and Bute, Scotland.

The proposals for the site at land north of Lamont Lodges, in Rashfield, were made last year by David Crowe and were awarded permission for a change of land this week.

No comments were received by Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Authority planning officers, either in support or objection.

A park authority planning officer said: “Overall the development would respect the existing landscape character and the development raises no landscape or visual concerns.

“The motorhome stances would be sufficiently spaced out within the site, following the negotiated removal of a number of pitches, and the development raises no amenity issues.

“The amenity building would be constructed in timber and have a metal roof and has been been designed to harmonise with the locality.

“In conclusion, the principle of the development is supported by the Local Development Plan and Park Partnership Plan as it would improve the range of visitor facilities and specifically provide facilities for motorhomes within an area of the National Park where the demand for such facilities is not currently being met.”
