Light, Noise, Smell, Keep Out - 24 hours/day, all year round

The proposal includes agricultural sheds, containers, salmon feed silos, , water tanks, treatment plants, desalination plants, horizontally laid oxygen tanks, office buildings, and a fish mortality handling station, operating 24 hours a day all year round.

All in addition to the 8 huge membrane-enclosed salmon containment systems, 2 freshwater pens, a harvesting enclosure, pipes, umbilicals and pontoons in the water.

As well as visually intrusive, this will inevitably lead to light, noise and odour pollution. The plant will need 24/7 monitoring and controlling, with servicing by additional heavy goods vehicles on the main Oban - Fort William A828 road, promoted to tourists as the Argyll Coastal Route.

The proposed mega farm would be directly viewed by the residents of Duror, Shuna and Balnagowan, 4 miles from Appin, bang next to the cycle track, and in an extremely popular area for tourists, kayakers, sailors, swimmers and all watersports enthusiasts.

This is a completely unsuitable location for any industrial development!
