Residents of a Rothesay block of flats say no-one in authority is listening to their alarm at the state of a former church building next door to their homes.
A confidential council report has laid bare the state of the former West Church in Argyle Street - and the estimated costs involved in demolishing the building or, alternatively, making it safe.
Plans to demolish the property were put on hold last year after a community group was formed in the hope of securing an alternative use for the building, which was last used as a church in the late 1970s.
But that move has alarmed those living in the flats next door to the structure, which was last used as a church in the late 1970s.
One of those residents, local artist Brian Large, said: “No-one is listening to the building’s neighbours. The people who want to save it are being listened to but the residents are not.”
