Western Isles MSP Alasdair Allan, has welcomed progress made at a meeting in Gravir yesterday where local residents of South Lochs voted to proceed with an amicable purchase option to buy the Pairc Estate.
Alasdair Allan commented: “I welcome what seems to be very positive progress in the Pairc land buyout, after a very lengthy and protracted process. If both parties can now agree an amicable deal then this would seem to be a beneficial deal for the community.
“I am very happy to help the Pairc Trust with any approaches they now have to make to funding bodies to raise the necessary funds to complete the buyout. While this matter is certainly not over I hope this is a very encouraging step towards the people of South Lochs taking more control of their own futures.”
