Flatt Road, Largs – Final Plans Consultation & Meet the Builder
As a result of additional site investigations undertaken following the demolition of the schools, the layout for the Flatt Road site has been altered slightly. The number of homes and housing mix have remained the same. The consultation event is being held to allow local people to:
· View the final site plans and house designs;
· Discuss any concerns about the building works with the Contractor; and
· Obtain information regarding site access arrangements and traffic management proposals.

A copy of the reviewed site plan has been enclosed with this letter.

North Coast and Cumbrae Joint Community Councils’ will hold a Public Meeting at 7pm on Thursday 21st February 2019 at Largs Academy Campus

Dear Community Councillors,

Largs Community Council, at the request of Friends of the Firth of Clyde, invites you to a meeting to better inform the public regarding Peel Ports Plans for Oil Rig Decommissioning at Hunterston Construction Yard.
The area to be developed lies within an important Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and on one of the most beautiful waterways in Northern Europe. It would be remiss of the North Coast and Cumbrae CC`s not to fully address these proposals. Proposals which have the potential to seriously damage our beautiful waterway, our environment and our tourism.
There will be an update on the parts played by North Ayrshire Council, the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, Scottish Natural Heritage and Marine Scotland in the process so far and an Environmental Presentation from Friends of the Firth of Clyde followed by a Q and A session.
We hope you will attend and let your communities know that this is open to everybody.

Regards

Heavy snow in Largs

Ayrshire Civil Contingencies Team

For the attention of Community Councils

During the recent “Beast from the East”, our community resilience colleagues in Largs and on the Isle of Cumbrae were very active and their work was recently publicised in the Largs and Millport Weekly newspaper.

Both these groups are very different and their development was very much dependent on and tailored to the needs of their community. Cumbrae, for example, approached everyone on the island and keep a list of older and more vulnerable people which, as you can see from the newspaper article above, they visited and made sure they were ok. This is partly due to the longheld view that whilst Social Services are aware of the vulnerable people that they are visiting, those elderly people who have no requirement for input from Social Services may become vulnerable after a couple of days of no electricity or not being able to leave the house due to snow – the Cumbrae Community Support Team considered this and have taken steps to address this in their own community.

CASE STUDY

A Sneak Preview of Largs Campus

This new school campus incorporates a relocated Largs Academy with staff and secondary pupils set to join them at their new school on April 18.

Some of the highlights include two amazing theatres for both primary and secondary pupils, a massive gym hall that is believed to be the BIGGEST in the UK and third-floor art classrooms with balconies that enable the provision for outdoor working.

Public Consultation – Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS), Halkshill/ Blairpark Largs Commercial Forest Proposal (Clyde Murshiel Regional Park)

Dear Councillor/ Friend/ Colleague
Ian Dippie of ‘Save the Gretta’s Campaign’ has been in contact myself advising that the final stage of the proposed commercial forest project will proceed to a second round of public consultation. It is anticipated that the 28 day statutory consultation period for this will commence sometime within the next week or two following a public advert in the Largs and Millport News.
*Any individual or group who may have intimated a concern to FCS previously should be written to separately.
*The new submission will take the form of addenda to the original EIA addressing the comments made by FCS in September 2016 and should be read in conjunction with the Original EIA.
* There are no further changes beyond what was submitted to FCS a few days before the Parish Church meeting held in December 2017 and its potential impact on the town and the Clyde Murshiel Regional Park.
* Paper copies of the updates will be supplied to the Community Council, Largs Library, North Ayrshire Council etc as before. Digital copy should be available on FCS website.
I think it is important to remember that this proposed scheme is the largest in Central Scotland and any decision will impact on this area for the rest of this century.
Regards
Douglas
