MSP vows to fight on over house gaff

The Oban Times - - Front Page -

MSP Michael Rus­sell has vowed to con­tinue to fight an ‘in­jus­tice’ against ‘blame­less’ Ann Colthart, af­ter a coun­cil plan­ning mis­take meant a house was built too close to her Con­nel home.

Mr Rus­sell said: ‘I am very frus­trated by the fail­ure of the coun­cil and the de­vel­oper to re­alise ac­tion needs to be taken.

‘I have put for­ward sug­ges­tions, none of which has been acted upon.

‘It is wrong. The coun­cil has to find a way for­ward. I am not giv­ing up.’

Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil re­sponded: ‘Ac­tion has been taken. We have found a so­lu­tion which pro­tects [her] pri­vacy. Given the new house is only 2.7m closer, with the changes in de­sign, the ap­pli­ca­tion was ac­cept­able.’
