Current Eilean Eisdeal Projects : ‘Rush and Gush’ Survey

Rush and Gush map

Community Planning Survey for the ‘Rush and Gush’

The results of the Community Planning Survey undertaken 2013, regarding the area of land known locally as the ‘Rush and Gush’, are now available to view below.

This survey was undertaken by Eilean Eisdeal following a complaint to Argyll and Bute Council and their request to Eilean Eisdeal, as landowners, to submit a planning application to formalise the use of land for storage. The results clearly show that the current waste/recycling provision for Easdale is unacceptable to many and there is a need for more formalised storage. We are now in the process of negotiating with Argyll and Bute Council to work towards solutions for the provision and location of waste/recycling facilities as well as better access into the area. We are also investigating appropriate funding opportunities

Further consultation is expected to take place during 2014.
