Planning officials are to investigate a permanent building at Faslane Peace Camp – after being accused of having ‘double standards’.
As revealed here, it is thought that the new visitor centre and communal space at the site in Shandon needs planning permission, but building work is continuing regardless.
Now Argyll and Bute Council officials are going to draw up a report after the matter was raised at a full council meeting on Thursday .
A background note to the motion put forward by local councillor George Freeman states: “Members of Rhu and Shandon Community Council and members of the public have highlighted their serious concerns over the ongoing building works and the lack of any action by the council to halt this unauthorised building activity.
“They have stated that double standards appear to apply when dealing with planning and building control issues at Faslane Peace Camp and with members of the general public.
“Concerns have also been raised over the number of caravans and buildings that are legally allowed at the camp.”
Cllr Freeman’s motion calling for action, seconded by Cllr Maurice Corry, was agreed by the council.
Details of the building are on the peace camp website here.
