The United Church of Bute's church centre will host Bute Community Council's monthly meeting on Wednesday, January 20.

The Bute public will get the chance at a public meeting this week to find out more about planners’ new approach to replacement windows in Rothesay’s buildings.

Ross McLaughlin from Argyll and Bute Council’s development and infrastructure services department will give a presentation on the subject at Bute Community Council’s monthly meeting.

The new policy - which gives officials leeway, but only in certain circumstances, to look more leniently on applications to replace timber-framed windows with UPVC versions - was adopted by the authority’s planning, protective services and licensing committee last month.

Mr McLaughlin’s presentation is the first item on the agenda at BCC’s January meeting, which takes place at the United Church of Bute’s church centre this Wednesday, January 20, at 7pm.
