New delay for developments at Dunbeg
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.
