fin­ish­ing a con­sul­ta­tion.

De­vel­op­ment Coll en­listed the ser­vices of in­de­pen­dent com­pany Lat­eral North for anal­y­sis on three sites for hous­ing, hav­ing al­ready con­sulted the com­mu­nity ear­lier in the year.

Dur­ing the con­sul­ta­tion, the pub­lic view was that the need for af­ford­able hous­ing took pri­or­ity over the lo­ca­tion.

Three lo­ca­tions of­fered were vis­ited by the dis­trict val­uer and plan­ning of­fi­cer for Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil, and fol­low­ing this, two were then taken off the mar­ket by the own­ers, leav­ing just one op­tion.

All this in­for­ma­tion is now in the hands of the Scot­tish Land Fund who will take the de­ci­sion at the end of Novem­ber whether or not they will give De­vel­op­ment Coll the funds re­quired.

A spokesman said: ‘ De­vel­op­ment Coll is de­lighted that mat­ters are mov­ing on and we look for­ward to Scot­tish Land Fund’s de­ci­sion.’
