To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S4W-28411 by Aileen McLeod on 24 November 2015, whether it will designate, for planning purposes, the Seil/Shuna/Melford loch system as a single entity and ensure that it is treated as such at all levels of the planning process.

Answered by Alex Neil (17/12/2015):

The protection that the planning system affords these waters would be a matter for Argyll and Bute Council to consider through the development planning process. The council's current development plan largely takes a criteria based approach to guide proposals to the most appropriate locations. The impacts that any specific proposal might have on these areas will be a material consideration when determining any planning application. The Scottish Government will monitor the situation closely.
