The Argyll DSFB is a statutory consultee for planning applications, such as aquaculture, wind farms and hydro schemes, that have the potential to affect salmon and trout fisheries in Argyll.
As part of our commitment to greater transparency in our work we are now logging all consultations that we receive and making these and any responses we make available here on our website.
If anyone has specific comments on planning applications that are still pending or wants more details about an application please get in touch with us before the deadline for that application.
