I have just been reliably informed that A&BC say they have all comments up to the point where the website went down. They say there were around 120 comments at that point.
There is a notice outlining an alternative way to submit comments on the ‘ search for a planning application’ page thus:
Please note: we are currently experiencing problems with our online planning and building standards system. We hope to have this up and running again as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you would like to make a comment on a planning application, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org . If you are looking for more information on a planning application, please call us on 01546 605518

- In fact they still seem to be accepting comments.
You are joking aren’t you? This is what happened before and everyone was made to send their comments in again. How many people are going to bother sending them in a 3rd time?
As far as I can see the site is still up and running and accepting comments – there are now 150 comments.
- The site is now back up and appears to still be accepting submissions.
- A database server crash is hardly ‘doctoring’ – I just wonder what caused it, and whether or not the data was backed up.
There have been enough twists and turns in the history of this particular project to provide material for a whole convention of conspiracy theorists.
There were 100 submissions made over the weekend. I have every reason to believe that the vast majority of these were in support of the application.
It would be nice to think that this is a random database crash, but the consultation period expires in a few hours and it would be awfully convenient for those on the Council who have set their face intransigently against any marina for so many years to have all this support just disappear.
(There is also every reason to believe that, with the word out, more submissions in support would have been forthcoming yesterday and today, which is why even if the data is recovered the consultation period needs to be extended)

This now brings Argyll and Bute and its electors hard up against the issue of whether there is any legitimate role for party politics in Argyll and Bute
I would say a more important question might be whether there is any role for local government in Argyll and Bute. Maybe it is time for direct rule from Holyrood.

It’s emblematic and is being read that way.
