A public drop in session on revisions to the Halkshill and Blair Park forestry proposals for the back hills in Largs is due to take place on Monday April 24.
Two sessions are arranged, one taking place between 2pm-4pm and the other  6pm -8pm at the Brisbane House Hotel function room. 
Representatives from the forestry applicants will be present to discuss particular aspects of the proposals, including public access, visual impacts and potential for a community woodland/future for recreation 
Council officers will be facilitating discussions in strictly an independent capacity. 
Last October, people power forced the developers of the controversial Largs forestry plan to rethink their options.
Following over 250 representations, Forestry Commission Scotland confirmed that the Stakis' original proposals were unacceptable in their current form, sending them back to the drawing board.
Local SNP MSP Kenneth Gibson met with developer Stakis's agents Tillhill Forestry in November, and said that the company have 'bent over backwards' to address the concerns raised, although voiced his disappointment regarding the lack of community benefit.
In February, a planning meeting took place involving Jim Miller, senior planning officer of North Ayrshire Council, Largs Community Council, and the Forestry Commission in relation to the Largs proposal.
Largs campaigner Ian Dippie of the Save The Gretas pressure group, which played a significant part in objecting to the the original Forestry proposal, has urged members of the public to attend the Monday forum events, and have their say on the proposals. He said: "The more people who attend these sessions the better."
In the revised proposals revealed earlier this year, the area downstream of the Greeto Bridge would be left open with scattered broadleaves and form the focus of the main recreation area, while visibility and access to the Quad Rocks will not be affected.
The slopes below the core path will be predominantly native broadleaves, with some pine planted. Amenity conifers and broadleaves will screen any view to the forestry operations on the upper slopes.
However, the lack of community benefits has also been highlighted as a concern by Largs Community Council.
The arbitrators, The Forestry Commission Scotland, who rejected the initial Stakis forestry application, had advised the developer to meet with all the organisations and groups regarding their amended plans for the site.
Last year, the Save the Gretas petition which was delivered to the developers received approximately 1000 online signatures, 600 paper signatures and over 300 comments were logged, with a Facebook page and change.org petition.
