Felling in Highlandman and Torr Forest. Updated March 1st 2019

New TTMP Published 27th Feb 2019

The harvesting of timber from the woods  behind Rhu  started  in Spring 2018. The original dates referred to in the maps below are not correct wnd will be updated when we have the information.  A TTMP Timber Traffic Management Plan is required.

The Contractor, Scottish Woodland Ltd,  

is eager to  minimise the disruption to the community.  However the proposed  extraction routes are down Station Road and Pier Road, so there will be disruption.

This map shows the extraction route.
