Projects along the north coastline will share £1.158million of funding allocated to Argyll and Bute from the Scottish Government’s Crown Estates Fund.

The money has been designated for three projects in the area by the local authority.

Tobermory railings and flood prevention scheme will get £145,000. and Rothesay pontoons improvement plan £151,000.

Helensburgh flood mitigation is gaining £300,000, Campbeltown flood defences £270,000 and coastal roads improvements, flood mitigation and emergency works across the area will benefit from £292,000.

Policy lead for roads and infrastructure, Councillor Robin Currie said: “Argyll and Bute has more than 4,000km (2,485 miles) of coastline. This funding award therefore is very welcome and will benefit a number of communities.”

Depute policy lead for economic growth, councillor Jim Anderson, added: “Marine Scotland, which distributes the funds, is keen that our coastal communities enjoy the benefits by the end of March 2020.

“Given the quick turnaround for organising and delivering the work required, funding will support key projects already under way across the area, helping to progress these more quickly than would otherwise have been possible.”
