Housing Support services

There are changes to how you can currently access Housing Support Services, due to the offices of HELP (housing support for 16 - 24 year olds in Bute and Cowal) and Carr Gomm (housing support for all ages across Argyll and Bute, and over 25s in Bute and Cowal) being currently closed

You can still access these services by phoning their dedicated support lines - find our full details in our Housing Support section

Building Standards and Planning and Development Services

Council offices remain closed to members of the public, following government advice on the actions we must all take to stay safe from coronavirus. We would ask anyone therefore wishing to submit documents/applications that this is done either via the Scottish Government Portal or electronically to the appropriate area office

You can find out more details of the phased resumption of site visits, and how to get in touch with Planning and Building Standards, submit comments on applications, submit casework for applications and get pre-application advice,  here on our website:
