Bute community councillors to look at town improvement role

Bute Community Council has agreed to look at ways in which the organisation can be involved in urban improvements in Rothesay, Port Bannatyne and Kilchattan Bay. BCC canvassed the public in 2012 looking for ideas on how to spend �100,000 set aside by Argyll and Bute Council for amenity improvements on the island, and eventually settled on this upgrade to the garden space on the corner of High Street and Montague Street.

Bute Community Council has agreed to look at ways in which the organisation can be involved in urban improvements in Rothesay, Port Bannatyne and Kilchattan Bay. BCC canvassed the public in 2012 looking for ideas on how to spend �100,000 set aside by Argyll and Bute Council for amenity improvements on the island, and eventually settled on this upgrade to the garden space on the corner of High Street and Montague Street.

 

Five members of Bute Community Council are to examine what role the organisation might have in encouraging town centre improvements around the island.

BCC members gave their backing this week to a paper prepared by community councillor Paul Duffy suggesting that BCC should have a role in encouraging urban improvement around the island - in Port Bannatyne and Kilchattan Bay as well as in Rothesay.

Local Argyll and Bute councillor Isobel Strong told BCC’s February meeting: “There are so many other different things for us to do as councillors, so it would be excellent if BCC took a role in this.”

The five BCC members who will examine the subject, and will report back by May at the latest, are Peter Wallace, Don Williams, Kevin Bye, Ellen Cromack and Mr Duffy himself.
