Time is running out to have your say on how Argyll and Bute shapes up over the next 10 years.

The council’s public consultation on its Local Development Plan 2 ends at noon on Thursday January 23.

The proposed plan looks at ways forward for developing homes, creating new work opportunities and looking after the environment through a catalogue of policies, proposals and deliverable development sites which will be used when considering planning applications.

Consultations to draw up the plan have been held with communities, developers, key government agencies and other stakeholders.

Serious concerns have already been raised from  worried residents about potential plans to build  a road connecting Ganavan direct to Dunbeg.

Fears are that motorists heading for Dunbeg would use the current coast-hugging road  from the town centre to link with it, turning it into a rat-run. The twisty, narrow road that skirts past Dunollie Castle is unfit for purpose as it is, say some objectors.
