Save Castle Toward

This campaign has ended.

Save Castle Toward

Reduce the amount that Argyll and Bute Council will accept for the Castle Toward estate from £1,750,000 to £750,000

Why is this important?

The community project will create in excess of 80 jobs in an area that desperately needs them. It will also create an attraction that will attract visitors to a beautiful part of Argyll, further boosting the areas fragile economy. The project will do more for the area than anything the council has so far done in relation to the estate. The communities of Dunoon, Innellan and Toward are united behind this project, unlike the council, who have only put obstacles in the way.

Reasons for signing

  • ABC should hold out their head in shame. Not paid anything for it, not done anything for it. Remember my kids enjoying school trips to Castle Toward - hope it gets restored to former glory..
  • A council is supposed to be there to support the community that elects it, not to put obstacles in its way for a project that will undeniably transform the local economy for the better.
  • i love band camp.

As SCCDC and the council have agreed a two week, last ditch, extension to the Right to Buy, so I have extended the petition to the 13th of February. Please keep signing and sharing, the council cannot keep ignoring what the community wishes to happen!

SCCDC have had a full, Red Book valuation carried out on the estate which shows that it is only worth £850,000. Even more reason for the council to accept £750,000!
Please keep signing and sharing.

The support for this is still growing so the petition will now close on Friday 31st as this is the last day of the SCCDC's Right to Buy

2015-01-24 20:07:16 +0000

In view of the latest decision by the council to decline extending the Right to Buy process, this petition will conclude on Sunday night in order that it can be presented to the council in an attempt to get them to see sense. Keep the signatures coming!
