A new planning application has been submitted to Argyll and Bute Council for the erection of two semi-detached homes on a vacant site in the centre of Port Bannatyne.

The new application - made after a previous permission lapsed due to building work not starting within the statutority time limit - is for a site bordering Castle Street and to the rear of 39 Marine Road in the village.

The applicant is Mrs Sarah Tominey of 30 Marine Place, Ardbeg, while the agent is Mr John Tominey of Duncryne Avenue in the Mount Vernon area of Glasgow.

A ‘design and access statement’ accompanying the application says: “The design of the proposed development of two semi detached dwelling houses would be compatible with the existing houses in the village environment of Port Bannatyne, being a conservation area.

“The proposal would be complimentary to the area, changing the neglected, [at] present unsightly gap site into a well developed and improved part of the village.

“Access to the front of the houses and the lowering of the stone wall would improve visibility for road traffic.

“Access to the rear of the development to and from Quay Street provides easy passage to public transport and amenities, [with the] existing right of access for pedestrians being retained.”
