What a turn out! 103 people came along yesterday for the final Balloch charrette event at the National Park headquarters. Thanks to everyone for sparing the time to view the great potential Balloch has to offer.
The final charrette showcased the suggestions and ideas of local people, community groups, school students and businesses which were captured over the course of the charrette throughout February and March.
7N architects created concept sketches, images and suggestions to show how these ideas may develop in future. People provided further ideas and suggestions on colourful post-it notes. Nick Wright, who facilitated the events, 7N architects, West Dunbartonshire Council and National Park planners were on hand to discuss the ideas and answer queries.
It was great to see that so many local representatives at the exhibition, including local residents, businesses, Loch Lomond Steamship Company, Lomond Shores, Loch Lomond Leisure Trust, Vale of Leven Youth Voice, St Kessogs Primary School and Balloch & Haldane Community Council. `St Kessogs students and members of Youth Voice were especially glad to see some of their ideas in proposals and liked what they saw.

So what happens next?
All this work will now be pulled together into a report which will be ready for the summer. A key part of the report will have an associated Action Plan / Delivery Plan where individual projects are identified. Projects will vary in timescales as some will be short term, others medium term and some long term.
