Local news from the Community Council
29 August 2018Waterfront Development - Comments Please!
Helensburgh Community Council continue to be supportive of the need to replace the existing swimming pool with an up-to-date facility. But we know from our community survey that the majority of our respondents do not approve of the current proposal.
Any previous comments at the Pre-Application Consultation stage are no longer valid - new comments need to be submitted to the planning authority about the current planning application.
We have been asked how to make comments on the planning application:
- Either go to the A&BC website at https://publicaccess.argyll-bute.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?keyVal=PC4IVWCHFK100&activeTab=summary and follow the 'Comments' link.
- Or, to simplify the process, use the quick form at https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/HCCWaterfrontFeedback/ to create text that you can send as an email directly to the planning department.
Note that it is up to the public to send their comments – the Community Council will make our own submission, but the planning department expects individuals to comment on the planning application directly.
We encourage everyone to make their voice heard at this final stage. Will your comment count? All that is certain is that if no-one comments then nothing will change.
