Kirkcudbright outdoor centre wins planning appeal

Plans for an outdoor activity centre in Dumfries and Galloway have been allowed to proceed following an appeal to the Scottish government.

A number of conditions have been attached to the scheme at Jordiebanks near Kirkcudbright.

The appeal had been lodged against Dumfries and Galloway Council's failure to give a decision within prescribed timescales.

A Scottish government reporter has now ruled the scheme can proceed.

However, he has attached a number of conditions to the plans which include pursuits such as fishing, canoeing, quad biking, archery and abseiling.

One stipulation is that plans for clay target shooting and paint balling should not proceed.
