Stop the destruction of the environment threatened by Murrayshall Quarry at Gillies Hill Cambusbarron. At this time Gilles Hill Cambusbarron, determined by many as a National Heritage, is under threat by \"Murrayshall Quarry Liaison Group\" who wish to resume removing the remainder of Gillies Hill by Quarrying. The Community Council of Cambusbarron called for every household in the area to write a letter to the press, or their MSP, or their Councillor to demand that the authorities stop destruction of the environment. Gillies Hill is a national asset - it must not be destroyed. You can help by expressing your condemnation of this action by writing to: The Editor, Stirling Observer,40 Upper Craigs, Stirling, Stirlingshire FK8 2DW The Editor, Scotland on Sunday, Barclay House, 108 Holyrood Road, Edinburgh EH8 8AS Your MSP, The Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh EH99 1SP Your Councillor, Stirling Council, Viewforth, Stirling, FK8 2ET The Murrayshall Quarry Liaison Group has not had unequivocal answers from Stirling Council on the local concerns: 1) Have the current proposals for quarrying stretched beyond those permitted by the 1980 /1982 planning consent 2) Have the 1980/1982 planning conditions been changed by the 2002 review made by Stirling Council without consultation with the community council 3)Previous planning conditions ref S/80/116 state at Condition 3:- a) The Developer shall ensure that, throughout the period of extraction, the quarry operations do not create a nuisance to the community or the environment. As a community we would like to know a) How would the current Murrayshall Quarry proposals safeguard the environment b) Where is the enforcement to prevent creation of a nuisance for the community Local residents are currently protesting that action is required to save Gillies Hill and preserve our heritage. We therefore need your Help to Save our Environment. Please sign the petition and help stop the destruction of Gillies Hill Cambusbarron.

    I am from St.Ninians and I have walked around Gillies Hill all my life, it is a beautiful place and should never be destroyed. There is endangered red squirrels along with other wonderful wildlife, owls etc. Pease use common sense and leave well alone.

    Please do not let this quarrying go ahead. Preserve the environment and peace for sake of ecology, wildlife and local residents.

    Quarrying Gilles Hill is something the community of Cambusbarron and the wider community of Stiring are vehemently against due to the destructive scar these works would leave on this important and beautiful formation of hills surrounding one of Scotland's most important monuments, Stirling Castle.
