A long-awaited review of parking arrangements in Rothesay is set to go out to public consultation soon - though exactly how soon has yet to be decided.

Among the proposals on which members of the public will be asked for their views is the introduction of a no waiting/no loading restriction on Ardbeg Road at its junction with Ardmory Road, and a redesign of Battery Place to create on-street parking with an associated resident permit scheme.

Leaflets explaining the proposals and asking people for their feedback are currently being produced by Argyll and Bute Council.

A council spokesperson said: “We would hope the consultation will start in October.

“This is a key stage in the process as it is the views of local people which will shape the plans. We would encourage people to take part in the consultation and play an active part in improving their towns.”
