The issue of frequent closures during the scheduled opening hours at Campbeltown’s Roading Waste Disposal Site was raised at last week’s meeting of Mid Argyll, Kintyre and the Islands Area Committee.

Councillor John Armour said he was still receiving complaints from people who were unexpectedly finding the amenity site closed, with no indication of when it would re-open, despite the issue being raised at the committee’s last meeting.

He added that the closures appeared to be happening more often than they had previously, and there was also an issue around parking in the vicinity of the site.

Jim Smith, head of roads and infrastructure services, said he would investigate these concerns with waste management company Renewi and provide feedback to members following the meeting.

He noted that it may be helpful to explore the ways in which signs and social media could be used to advise of any temporary closures and timescales for re-opening.
