Rhu & Shandon Community Council

Highlandman's Wood Timber Extraction

Added on 31 January 2019

Following a meeting with concerned residents, two members of the Community Council, Fiona Baker and Peter Knox, met with all parties involved with the extraction, except Argyll and Bute.

  •  Kirsty Robb - Ridings Sawmill, Cardross.
  •  Barry Harper, Scottish Woodlands
  • Allan Johnston, Coille Haulage
  •  Iain Catterwell, Argyll Timber Transport Group.

The transportation of the Timber through the village of Rhu is governed by a TTMP which is a voluntary agreement between the timber extraction team and Argyll and Bute Council. It contains exclusion times when school children are likely to be on the road.
The TTMP published on the A&B website is incorrect. It was changed in November but only our councillors were informed.
