Window of hope in Rothesay hotel row?

A report on Argyll and Bute Council's Rothesay windows policy will be discussed by the authority's planning, protective services and licensing committee on April 23. The policy provides guidance on the type of windows deemed appropriate in the outstanding conservation area which covers most of the town centre, including the Bute House Hotel, where the partial installation of UPVC windows has fallen foul of the council's planning policies.

There are signs this week of a glimmer of light in the acrimonious dispute over the installation of UPVC windows in a Rothesay town centre hotel.

Argyll and Bute Council’s Bute and Cowal area committee met in private to discuss the row over the Bute House Hotel on April 9, and a report on the matter will be considered by the authority’s planning, protective services and licensing committee (PPSL) when it meets in Lochgilphead next week.

And while the detail of the meeting is being kept confidential, Bute councillor Robert Macintyre, who chairs the committee, said afterwards: “Changes to the Rothesay windows policy were discussed and a report with recommendations will go to the PPSL committee on April 23, when hopefully meaningful change will be commenced.”
