£30 million Scottish resort project to feature aparthotel

UK: Plans for a £30 million resort development in Balloch, near Loch Lomond, include an aparthotel.

The amendments to the proposed resort, a joint venture between Scottish Enterprise and Flamingo Land Ltd, were lodged last week. The original proposals included 105 holiday lodges, an aparthotel, brewery, monorail and an indoor leisure and waterpark centre at West Riverside and Woodbank House.

However, the resort, named Lomond Banks, has now been amended with changes including:
• Conversion and extension of Woodbank House to form 15 residential flats
• Reducing the number of proposed houses within the grounds of Woodbank House from 20 to six
• Increasing the number of proposed lodges/bothies within the grounds of Woodbank House from 28 to 50
• Changing the use of the proposed boathouse on the promontory at Drumkinnon from self-catering to storage/water based recreation
• Changing to the extent of development at the Pierhead

The project, which has an anticipated completion date of 2024, expects to bring as many as 80 full time jobs, 50 part-time jobs and to 70 seasonal posts to the area.

Andy Miller, director at Lomond Banks, said: "Our plans for West Riverside and Woodbank House offer an opportunity for a unique leisure based development and with Lomond Banks, Scotland will have a quality destination that respects and compliments the surrounding area."

Once all representations and information from the applicant has been fully considered, the planning case officer will make a recommendation to board members to either approve or refuse the application.

"ULF is a long needed innovative approach. The blend of content demonstrates that hospitality provides the increasingly crucial thread through so many real estate classes and not only refers to traditional hotels and serviced apartments but has already permeated the residential markets in their increasingly varied formats. Now these services are expanding into the residential innovative care and office markets in the UK and overseas. We are witnessing the market converging at pace as investors seek optimum yield across a variety of urban asset classes. These are exciting and pioneering times and I look forward to expanding my horizons at this unique event"
