Approval is being sought for a business case to spend £1.5milllion improving Lochgilphead town centre in Argyll.
The work is being financed by Argyll and Bute Council’s Tarbert and Lochgilphead Regeneration Fund.
A design is being developed for Lochgilphead Front Green and Colchester Square.
A planning application has now been submitted for the agreed proposed design which includes improvements to transport connections, public art and lighting.
A full business case has been developed and it is expected that procurement for the construction phase will commence shortly. This will confirm the project costs.
Members of the Mid Argyll, Kintyre and Islands Area Committee will meet on Wednesday. They will be asked to recommend to the Policy and Resources Committee that draft full business case for Lochgilphead is approved and that Council
funding of up to £1,530,000 is confirmed.
