Peacock welcomes Pairc land purchase vote.

15 December 2009


Speaking after a briefing with Pairc Trust in Stornoway today (Tuesday), Peter Peacock MSP said,

"What the community in Pairc is trying to do is of vital importance for the future and they deserve every support they can get.

"The resounding support of the community in the recent ballot is a powerful endorsement of the plans.

" I still hope the landowner will conclude a deal with the community quickly, but time is running out for him.

"If he won't conclude this voluntarily then it will fall to Scottish Minister to approve the plans in the public interest and I will do all I can to encourage them to back the community and their clear desire to take control of their land."
