Plans have been approved by Argyll and Bute Council for a physiotherapy and fitness centre to move into an Oban business estate.
Two units within block three of the Glenshellach Business Park will be changed from class 4 business accommodation to class 2 in order to reflect the change.
Concerns had been expressed by Oban Disability Forum that the link path from Lorn and the Islands Hospital to the business park was not usable due to vegetation and intrusive vehicle parking.
But a council planning officer said that it was not a planning issue and that any concerns should be taken up with the authority’s amenity services unit or police.
The plans were submitted to the council by Karen Breslin and Jenny Dairon in autumn and were given the go-ahead this week.
The report added that the new wellness centre would provide “a complementary health and well-being service.”
It also said: “Furthermore, the design of the units being single storey with a level entrance, together with the provision of a dedicated parking area is a key requirement for users of the proposed service who will most likely have mobility issues.”
A business plan for the wellness centre said that it would come with a variety of services, including advanced manual therapy, injury diagnosis and rehabilitation, and pilates classes.
