RASCARREL POLL “YES” VOTE PDF Print E-mail

Votes were counted on Monday night to see if the villagers of Auchencairn wished the Community Council and Initiative to proceed with an application to purchase Rascarrel Moss wood under the National Forest Land Scheme. The 400 acre forest has been offered to the community by the Forestry Commission on condition that community support is shown.

In the event over 78% of those eligible voted with 66% of those voting yes. The vote count was overseen and scrutinised by Gordon Kinghorn and Marie Jackson of Stewartry Council for Voluntary Services. The bid must now go before the NFLS Evaluation Panel after which there will be a period of public consultation.

Initiative chairman Ross Paton said “we are delighted by the turnout and now we can proceed with the exercise knowing we have broad community support."
