Views sought on Simplified Planning Zones for Argyll and Bute
Argyll and Bute Council is proposing to implement SPZs at Salen on Mull and in Lochgilphead.
The initiative would allow certain homes to be built without the need to apply for traditional planning consent, making the process faster and much easier for people thinking about building their own home.
Anyone interested are now being invited to attend information and feedback-gathering events next month at the following locations:
David Kinniburgh, the council’s policy lead for planning and regulatory services, said: “The idea behind the Simplified Planning Zones is to remove obstacles for people who want to build custom or self-build homes. There will be a lot of great information available at these events and I would encourage everyone with an interest to attend and find out more about the proposals.”
