Secret deal ends planning dispute

A CONFIDENTIAL agreement has been reached to alter the Connel home of Ann Colthart, who claimed she lost her privacy after social housing was built too close to her house due to a planning mistake.

The details of the settlement will not be disclosed but Argyll and Council Council states it does not include cash compensation.

In May last year, Ms Colthart, a retired teacher, realised a two-storey semi-detached house in neighbouring St Oran’s Place was going up 9.3m away from her 14-year-old sunroom at Duriehill, when Argyll and Bute Council’s local planning guidelines state there must be an 18m or 12m separation.
