Voting is underway
among residents of the Pairc Estate in the South Lochs area of Lewis,
to determine whether they wish to accept a deal with current landowner
Barry Lomas. The result of the vote will be known on March 13th. I have
written extensively about this case, and it only remains for me to
conclude that although the road has been hard, long and dirty, it would
appear that the community of Pairc now has ownership of (most of) its
land within its grasp.
