Easdale Island dump on a deadline

There was a meeting on Easdale Island on 19th December 2012 with Argyll and Bute Council’s planning department and the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency [SEPA].

This was to discuss the materials dumped near the shore on land owned by the local development charity, Eilean Eisdeal.

The Council has given Eilean Eisdeal until 15th January 2013 either to have cleared away the unsightly dump or to have applied for planning permission for change of use in respect of this land.

  2. Isn’t it a shame that action has had to be taken by island residents against a group of people who claim to act in the interest of the community?
    What may also be unknown is that whenever an islander of ‘independent thought’ (i.e. holding different views from those of Eilean Eisdeal) behaves in a way that Eilean Eisdeal directors see unfit, it seems that a solicitor’s letter arrives on the doormat within days of the supposed transgression.

  3. If Eilean Eisdeal intend to apply for planning permission for a change of use in respect of this land then they would be well advised to heed the OSCR directive advising them to consult the islanders first.

  4. I think a fair consensus would be that ‘Eilan Easdale’ get this rubbish removed to a licensed landfill site, or waste transfer station. That is merely the nescessary rules we all need to adhere to.
    To draw this matter out any further would be hard to comprehend and indeed costly to them (EE), by way of a large fine, and the obligation to remove said material would still be live. One possibility would be for the Council to have the rubbish removed and deposited appropriately with Eilan Easdale picking up the tab, which would in all likelihood be a more expensive stance.
    Im sure common sense will prevail.

  5. With the power of punctuation the headline on this post could become more accurately…..Easdale Island “dump on a deadline?” in this case “dump” being a noun but could also be, depending on one’s opinion, a verb, directed at the self perpetuating individuals ruining (not ruNning )the place. Observations based on years of dealing with same!

  6. …….funny, the Planning Dept have a different take on it. Maybe your new year’s resolution should be to tell the truth not what you’d like it to be. Anyone can phone the officers up and ask them what’s happening – other readers should try it some time.
