Community Council election
NONE of the Community Councils in Helensburgh and Lomond received enough nominations to trigger a contest in the recent round of nominations.
Polling is required only if there are more candidates that vacant seats on the community council and the only community council in Argyll and Bute which attracted enough interest to require a contest was Kilmun.
Rhu and Shandon Community Council has a massive 11 vacancies having only attracted one new member, Morven Boyle, Coach House, Station Road, Rhu.
Cardross has two new members, Wendy Clarke, 58 Kirkton Road, and Rikki Young, 59 Hillside Road, and still has two vacant seats.
Cove and Kilcreggan also has two new members and two vacant seats remaining. The new members are Derek Fowlis, Elim, Argyll Road, Kilcreggan and Alastair Lamont, Baroncliffe Cottage, South Ailey Road, Cove.
Helensburgh had three nominees for its three vacant seats. The new members are David Allan, 145 West Princes Street, Neil Drummond, 193 West King Street and Alistair MacBeth, 40 West Montrose Street.
Rosneath and Clynder has five vacancies but received no nominations and Arrochar and Tarbet also failed to attract any nominees for its one empty seat.
Garelochhead, and Luss and Arden community councils declined the opportunity for a by-election to fill vacancies.
