”The council is committed to supporting and encouraging long-term, sustainable economic growth across Argyll and Bute.

We know that the stunning landscape and quality architecture continue to attract people to the area to work, live and visit. Our planning team play a vital role looking at how residential and commercial development can add to the area’s success.
