Time is running out to have your say on plans for a major re-drawing of council wards which would see Bute lumped in with a large swathe of the Cowal peninsula.
The Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland wants to create a single ward from 2017 onwards which would cover all of western Cowal - including Colintraive, Glendaruel, Tighnabruaich, Portavadie and more, to a point almost as far north as Strachur - as well as Bute.
The deadline for members of the public to comment on the plans is this Thursday, October 22.
Opponents say the plans could leave communities in Cowal under-represented because of Bute’s much larger population.
Bute Community Council and Argyll and Bute Council have already made known their opposition to the proposals
The commission’s proposals - which affect almost every part of Argyll and Bute - would also see the total number of councillors in the area reduced from 36 to 33.
