THE de­ci­sion by Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil’s plan­ning com­mit­tee to waive the rules over the con­struc­tion of hous­ing that breaches reg­u­la­tions was widely con­demned. Jenny Low blasted: ‘ This is shock­ing! They should be de­mol­ished!’

Coun­cil­lor Julie McKen­zie praised: ‘Great to see the lo­cal pa­per cov­er­ing Ann’s case so com­pre­hen­sively – an ap­pallingly bad de­ci­sion by some of my col­leagues on the coun­cil yes­ter­day.’

Laura Cook raged: ‘ This makes a mock- ery of the plan­ning process!!! Some of us had to fol­low the rules to the let­ter. This is just so very un­fair, I can­not un­der­stand how it can be al­lowed.’

Gus Lau­ren­son posted: ‘Just an­other ex­am­ple of ‘’who you know’’ as McLeods can do pretty much as they like in Ar­gyll and Bute. Sur­prised Rory Colville had time to at­tend this meet­ing as he is ob­vi­ously too busy to at­tend to his con­stituents is­sues!!’

Nor­man Martin wrote: ‘Ut­terly dis­grace­ful treat­ment of a pen­sioner

who has given im­mense ser­vice to the com­mu­nity over 40 years.’

Gill Cur­rie said: ‘A dis­grace!’ There was praise for St Co­nan’s Kirk, which was listed among the top 10 build­ings in Scot­land from the past 100 years.

Robert Scot­land wrote: ‘ Well worth a visit if you’re in the area, It’s just an amaz­ing build­ing:-)’

Joyce Downey agreed: ‘It is a beau­ti­ful church on the loch side worth stop­ping to visit.’
