The Oban Times - - Front Page -

CON­STRUC­TION work be­gan at Oban air­port on Tues­day, the first of Ar­gyll and Bute coun­cil’s Lorn Arc re­gen­er­a­tion projects.

A £600,000 scheme will see ac­cess im­prove­ments to the air­port to open up a busi­ness park op­por­tu­nity.

Coun­cil­lor Roddy McCuish, chair­man of Oban, Lorn and the Isles area com­mit­tee, was on site and said: ‘It is all about mak­ing it at­trac­tive for in­vestors as a prime busi­ness park area, get­ting them to lo­cate their premises here and bring jobs to the area.’

The work, by the coun­cil’s road team, is ex­pected to be com­plete by Novem­ber 2015. The money has come from the Scot­tish gov­ern­ment’s Tax In­cre­men­tal Fi­nance (TIF) scheme, which funds coun­cil in­vest­ment in in­fra­struc­ture through a loan.
