Oban Bay Public Meeting
The public meeting on 18th July was well attended by a wide section of Oban public and business representatives. No-one spoke up for CALMAC from the floor of the meeting and there was much cogent criticism of the approach to date. This was particularly directed at the lack of consultation, the timing of the meeting, doubts about the legality of the process and a general feeling that a Trust Port was the best way forward. The safety issues were not in doubt but it was observed that, if they were needed, then they were needed whatever the rights and wrongs of the situation.
Councillor Robertson closed the meeting with an observation that a community led harbour was the way forward and she, like many in the audience, was unclear what the real obstacles to this were.view all news
