Forest Enterprise Scotland (FES) have advised that they are carrying out a roadline blast near Ardentinny on Tuesday 6th February. Residents in the area may hear 2 bangs at around lunch time. The first will be the blast itself and the second will be any unused explosives being destroyed on site. FES will have two sentries stationed on the public road to halt traffic passing through Ardentinny, only for a few moments, while the blast goes off.
Under the proposals, the existing Cowal Ward would disappear and Ardentinny would fall within Ward 8, Lomond North. Details of the proposals can be found here and you can give your views via their consultation portal.
The consultation period ends on 22 October, 2015.
