Six homes ap­plied for in Kil­more

The Oban Times - - News -

AN AP­PLI­CA­TION has been sub­mit­ted by Ar­gyll Com­mu­nity Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion (ACHA) to dou­ble the num­ber of homes to be built at Bar­ran, Kil­more.

The ap­pli­ca­tion ini­tially ap­plied for three de­tached houses – but the hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tion has asked to vary its pre­vi­ous ap­pli­ca­tion to six semi- de­tached homes.

Kil­more Com­mu­nity Coun­cil has raised con­cerns about the ap­pli­ca­tion.

It wrote to the plan­ning au­thor­ity say­ing: ‘Res­i­dents have shown con­cern that should other plots be con­verted to semi- de­tached homes, this would re­sult in a fur­ther in­crease in pop­u­la­tion den­sity, chang­ing the na­ture of the devel­op­ment in the fu­ture.’

In re­sponse to fur­ther ob­jec­tions from Kil­more res­i­dents, the plan­ning au­thor­ity stated: ‘Each plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion is con­sid­ered on its own mer­its.’
