National park proposed development at Glenoglehead by Grant Moir of LLTNP
Five lochs area Lubnaig, Voil, Venachar and Glenogle 5 year plan to complete all sites 1st sites to be upgraded will be Lubnaig. The idea is to target the issues of litter, wild camping, antisocial behavior and to bring more people who will spend more time and money in the area. These sites will have camping spaces, mobile home parking, toilets, fire pits, picnic tables and a kiosk which will be leased to a proposed manager who will look after the site in the summer season. The kiosk will be a wooden and stone structure with a slate roof to be in keeping with the park. The winter maintenance will be undertaken by the NP. Glenoglehead does not have any issues with antisocial behavior however it will still require some form of policing.
FVHB (forth valley health board) have had an application for a Davidsons pharmacy at Myrtle Grove Killin. There will be a public meeting on the 28th Nov 2012 to discuss arising matters. FVHB are promoting pharmacies, they have weighted favour of a pharmacy for Killin. KCC are to reply to FVHB letter asking for more info. KCC to also write to invite Davidson’s chemist to the public
meeting. Is a pharmacy necessary or desirable as we already have a provision at the Doctors surgery which may be jeopardised if a pharmacy should open, Killin could be left with no provision in the future should the new pharmacy not work out. Parking at Myrtle Grove was considered a problem.

PUBLIC TOILETS Top toilets cost £8500.00 per year to maintain bottom toilets cost £7500.00 per year. Bottom toilets are priority, comfort partnerships have been deferred until June 2013 to give time to come up with a resolution to the problem. Top toilets are associated with the mill and could jeopardise the mills function if they are not saved also.
ACOB The trees between Lix Toll and the bridge to be looked into as they require cut back. They are on a programme to be cut if finances allow although the timescale is unknown.
