Chil­dren’s home given green light

The Oban Times - - News -

PLAN­NING per­mis­sion to con­vert a Lochy­side guest house into a chil­dren's res­i­den­tial home has been ac­cepted.

Lochan cot­tage, a seven-bed­roomed guest house, is to be con­verted into a res­i­den­tial home for up to five chil­dren who would live at the prop­erty with two staff at the house 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Chil­dren will stay for be­tween sev­eral weeks up to a num­ber of years. It is be­lieved the res­i­den­tial home will be set up by Scot­tish chil­dren's char­ity Aber­lour Trust, which helps chil­dren and fam­i­lies with is­sues such as liv­ing with a dis­abil­ity, grow­ing up in and leav­ing care and the im­pact of drugs and al­co­hol on fam­i­lies.
