June 2014 - site with building materials in August 2013
HCWG had long campaigned against the unlawful storage of building materials on the land at Cumberland Avenue and thus much welcomed Argyll and Bute Council’s decision in March 2014 to serve an enforcement notice on landowners Margery Osborne and Thomas Paterson requiring the removal of the materials.

Nevertheless, as the landowners appealed to Scottish Government against the enforcement notice, the building materials were not finally removed until 2 June 2014, when a Scottish Government Reporter visited the site. The Reporter subsequently dismissed the landowners’ appeal as well as their claim for expenses against Argyll and Bute Council.
