New de­lay for de­vel­op­ments at Dun­beg

The Oban Times - - News -

DUN­BEG res­i­dents may have to wait longer for a new ho­tel and round­about, as plans prove ‘ex­tremely com­plex’ and may take a ‘con­sid­er­able time’.

Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil has re­newed plan­ning per­mis­sion for a pro­posed ho­tel, leisure fa­cil­i­ties and lodges, sub­mit­ted by Ar­cade Build­ing Ser­vices Ltd (ABSL), of Glas­gow, on land south of the A85 at Tom Liath/ Tom Ard, Dun­beg.

ABSL re­ceived plan­ning per­mis­sion in 2014, but it had to re-ap­ply be­fore the nor­mal three-year dead­line ex­pired.

Its ap­pli­ca­tion ex­plained that, back in 2012, ABSL and West High­land Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion (WHHA) had jointly re­ceived con­sent to form a round­about on the A85, giv­ing ac­cess to ABSL’s pro­posed ho­tel to the south, and WHHA’s fu­ture de­vel­op­ment to the north.

WHHA then be­came part of Link Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, which in 2016 sub­mit­ted a plan for 600 houses on the A85’s north side, and is still await­ing a de­ci­sion. Con­sent for the round­about was also re­newed.

The coun­cil re­newed plan­ning per­mis­sion for ABSL’s ho­tel for five years un­til 2022.
