A public presentation this week on the attitude of Argyll and Bute Council’s planning officials towards replacement windows in historic Rothesay buildings will not now take place.

The presentation was due to have been given at Wednesday night’s meeting of Bute Community Council, but BCC secretary Mick Common was informed by phone and email on Tuesday that Ross McLaughlin, the official due to speak on the subject, will not be able to attend due to illness.

Another presentation at Wednesday’s meeting, by Bute Community Power project manager Boyd Alexander, is still going ahead.

The meeting, which is open to the public, takes place at the Pavilion cafe in Rothesay and starts at 7pm.
