The agenda for Thursday’s meeting of Argyll and Bute Council has mysteriously disappeared from the council’s website.
The move this morning (Saturday) is unusual – and ironic given that one of the items to be discussed was a highly critical report by the Accounts Commission, which included criticism of the way that full council meetings were organised.
More than 20 other items were due to be debated, some of them likely to be controversial, including the possibility of legal action against Faslane Peace Camp.
The saga of Castle Toward, Ardentinny Outdoor Centre and the Actual Reality Trust, which has led to complaints to the Public Standards Commissioner, was also due to be debated.
The council has had four changes of leadership since April 2012, and an Audit Scotland report highlighted the fact that full council meetings often last all day but were still unable to cover all the agenda.
The Local Government (Scotland) Act requires councils to make agendas available three clear days before the meeting; Thursday’s meeting is due to start at 11am.
