As Statutory Consultees, Seil & Easdale Community Council will be commenting on this application.

To inform our response, once the application is available to the public we will write to everyone on the Open Register of Electors as at 3 June 2019 to invite their views. All responses will be anonymous.

Please note that by law we cannot write to you unless you chose to be on the Open Register. The Open Register can be viewed in Oban Library, or visit for more information.

We want all members of the community to have the opportunity to give their views. If you are not on the Open Register but are a resident or property owner on Seil or Easdale and would like to respond to the consultation, please contact the Community Council Secretary for a letter by emailing email hidden; JavaScript is required or if you do not have access to email by phoning 300025.

The Community Council encourages all members of the public to submit comments via the Argyll & Bute planning website.

A response to our consultation does not replace your own submission.

Thank you

New phone directory

The Community Council would like to produce a new edition of the phone directory but need your permission if you want to be included. We are aware the directory is widely used as a useful resource for the local community, however it is a public document and your details are made available to anyone who purchases the directory. Due to introduction of legislation relating to the use of personal information we need your consent for your details to be printed in the directory. We cannot put any entries into the directory unless we have written consent so unless we get this, your details will not be included in the new edition.

You can complete the  return slip at the bottom of your Seilachan  and leave it in the shop. Alternatively you can email your details to the Community Council secretary, Anne Foster, asking for the details to be included in the directory. Anne’s email address is
We would really wish to encourage people to send in their details as the directory is much appreciated by so many people.
