700 people responded to Argyll and Bute Council’s public consultation on the future of land use and development. Their replies showed which things they would like to see in the new Local Development Plan.
As a result the council is to consult on 32 potential additional sites which were suggested by the public, including assessments of their likely environmental implications.
Lead Councillor for Development, John Semple, said, “The sites included in the consultation document are considered potential suitable candidates for development and if included would add capacity for housing, community and economic opportunities during the five year period covered by the plan.
“The consultation on potential additional sites suggested by the public demonstrates the Council’s commitment to listening to and responding to communities.”
Subject to the outcome of the consultation the sites may be included in the proposed Local Development Plan in addition to those identified in the Main Issues Report.
The consultation will run for a period of 6 weeks from 9 July to 20 August, with the document available on the Councils website www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/ldp as well as libraries and main council offices across Argyll and Bute.
