South Lanarkshire Council is currently processing the final stages of our planning application for the "erection of a timber clubhouse, toilet facility, engine house and rope tow to facilitate downhill skiing" on Lowther Hill.

Statutory consultees (Roads, Environmental Services, Scottish Natural Heritage) are due to send their feedback to Planning by 17-09-2014.

Members of the public will be able to send letters of support until 24-09-2014.

Letters of support give far greater weight to our application.

If you haven't sent your letter of support yet, please give us 5 minutes of your time and help us by adding your comments of support:

1. Go to and type our Application Number, CL/14/0358, under Search Criteria.

2. Click on Add Comments Here and write a brief comment in support of the application. For example: "It's a fantastic idea", "I look forward to skiing on Lowther Hill", or "It'll be great for the local families and the community in general", etc.

The kindness and support we have received has been incredible and it’s great that more and more people are getting involved.

Thank you for making this happen!
