A public hearing will take place today (Thursday April 5) to determine the fate of a recreational hut that was constructed near Clachan Seil.

Deputy Lord Lieutenant Graham MacQueen didn’t obtain planning permission before building the shelter for his disabled wife.

He has since lodged a retrospective planning application and Argyll and Bute Council’s planning committee will make a decision today at 11am at the Corran Halls.

Graham’s son, Peter, made an online plea seeking support. He explained that his dad is a full-time carer for three people and, with the aid of their wheelchair-friendly boat, Peter said the hut is necessary for respite.
