Letter from the council regarding the mess at Carradale Harbour

4th August 2016

Subject: RE: Mess at harbour

Dear Mr Irvine

Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to you and I can confirm that on a recent trip to Campbeltown I took the
opportunity to visit the site along with Pippa Milne, the Executive Director for Development and Infrastructure who has since instructed
Stewart Clark, the Council’s Marine Operations Manager to lead a multi-disciplinary team approach including with other public sector
agencies to improving the situation in Carradale.

I can further advise that they will be meeting collectively on site in September after which a clear plan of action to remedy the
situation will be agreed and implemented.
In the interim Stewart Clark will contact you directly to meet with you in Carradale to discuss further and will keep you informed of

As I am sure you are aware, this is not a straightforward matter and please be assured that the Council will continue to endeavour to
resolve these matters.
