Helco Developments wanted to deliver the project on a site north-east of Braeside on the village’s Station Road.

When considered by Argyll and Bute Council’s planning, protective services and licensing committee on January 19, planning officers had recommended that a hearing should take place before a decision is made - but also said that in their view permission should be granted.

However, an officer told the committee that around 120 objections had been received - some of them as recently as the morning of the meeting, the Helensburgh Advertiser reports.

It was confirmed that the hearing will take place virtually, and a date will be announced in due course.
