Lochgilphead Front Green

Lochgilphead Front Green

Lochgilphead Front Green and Colchester Square are important public spaces within the heart of Lochgilphead and they are a natural  focal point for the town. Thanks to the Tarbert and Lochgilphead Regeneration Fund Argyll and Bute Council have the opportunity to work with the local community towards delivering improvements to the Lochgilphead Front Green and Colchester Square.

It has been a long term aspiration of the residents of Lochgilphead to see the Front Green used more by people for community events and for general recreation and enjoyment. This project aims to work with the community to help fulfil the potential of this wonderful public space within the heart of Lochgilphead.

The project will be delivered in stages and this web page will provide you with up to date information on the project as it develops.

During 2019, the new design is being worked up in consultation with local community.  More information on each stage can be seen below. 

Detailed design proposals

Come along to Front Green on Saturday 24th August between 11am and 3pm to see the final detailed design proposals, before they are submitted for planning permission.

Please join us for a cuppa and a chat!

The proposals will also be posted on this website early the following week.
