Helensburgh Referendum on Colquhoun Square Public Realm Improvement Works
*** Update - 26 June 2012 ***
An informal referendum on the public realm works in Colquhoun Square in Helensburgh was held on Monday 25 June 2012. It comes after a motion put forward by Helensburgh and Lomond Area Committee Lead Councillor James Robb was agreed at the first meeting of the new council on 22 May.
The motion included an informal referendum on possible options for the improvements in Helensburgh’s Colquhoun Square. Details of the three options included in the referendum are available at the bottom of this page.
Argyll and Bute Council leader Roddy McCuish said “The council decided there should be one last opportunity for the public to be consulted and offered a genuine choice on the design proposal for Colquhoun Square with the Helensburgh Public Realm Improvement (CHORD) Project. The funding is ring-fenced and ready to be drawn down to progress whatever option is selected and taken forward by the council.”
In order to be eligible to vote in the referendum you must be a resident in Ward 9 Lomond North, Ward 10 Helensburgh Central and Ward 11 Helensburgh and Lomond South. You must be aged 18 or above on or before 25 June.
The results of the informal referendum will be considered by the council when looking at how to progress the improvement works.
