PLANS for a new ho­tel on land next to The Oban Inn have been submitted to Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil.

The Ar­gyll Ho­tel pre­vi­ously stood on the site but was de­mol­ished in 2011 and the site has lain derelict ever since.

Cal­lum Ma­cLeod, owner of Pi­azza and Ee-Usk restau­rants on the North Pier, has now pro­posed a 28-bed­room ho­tel in its place.

The ar­chi­tect is Shauna Cameron who has been at the fore­front of in­no­va­tive de­sign projects through­out the area, in­clud­ing the Lu­ing At­lantic Is­lands Cen­tre.

The ho­tel, which will be built be­tween the Re­gent Ho­tel and The Oban Inn, will have two storeys with a third floor in the roof space above an open re­cep­tion, din­ing room and lounge.

The roof is to be fin­ished in blue/ black slate with white ren­dered walls.

Plans seem to sug­gest there will be two pends on the ground floor to al­low ac­cess to dis­abled park­ing.

Var­i­ous de­vel­op­ment pro­pos­als for this site have been granted per­mis­sion in the past, most re­cently a 63-bed ho­tel over five floors.

On floors one and two, nine bed­rooms look onto the Es­planade, while four suites are in the roof space on the top floor.

It is hoped 12 peo­ple will be em­ployed at the ho­tel.

The old Ar­gyll Ho­tel was de­mol­ished in 2011.
