Draft Minutes

Hunters Quay Community Council

Meeting Thursday, 1stAugust, 2019.


Present were: R Zielinski, J.Gill and T.Law

Apologies:- F.McInnes and J.Bell

Present :- Councillor A Reid, Constable G.Henderson & Constable J Convery

Declaration of Interest :- None.

Minutes :- Were accepted.


Police report :- Constable Henderson reported that there had been 7 crime reports during the month of July, the matter of cars parking on the double yellow lines within the area was raised again however, Constable Henderson reiterated that illegal parking was now the remit of the local authority and should be raised with the relevant parking wardens.

Councillors Report :- I was asked at the last meeting about taxes paid at the holiday park. I have researched this on the Assessor’s website and found out the following details.

The rateable value of the holiday park is £426,500, which means by my calculation, the park owners, Cowal Leisure Ltd, pay £220,074 a year in business rates. If they put more caravans on the site, they will pay more.

6 of the individually owned chalets are rated, 5 at £1600 and one at £2,400. This means the occupiers of the £1,600 rated chalets are due to pay £784 a year in business rates and the £2,400 one £1,176. However under the small business bonus scheme they may be entitled to 100% relief if the total rateable value of premises they occupy is under £15,000. I’ve emailed the Assessor to ask if this is the case.

58 of the chalets or caravans are assessed for Council Tax, 34 in Band A, 14 in Band B and 10 in Band C. The full Council Tax for band A is £872.55, for band B is £1017.98 and for band C is £1163.40. Single occupier discounts might apply.

Council Tax is paid to the Council, but business rates are paid to the Scottish Government. So all the Council gets is the Council Tax from these 58 chalets/caravans.

I’ve emailed the Assessor and asked why some chalets/caravans are assessed for business rates and others for Council Tax. I’ve also asked if the Small Business Bonus Scheme applies to these.

Still no date yet for hearing on planning application for the expansion of Hunters Quay Holiday Village, at present there are 55 objections and 39 letters of support.


Damaged Street Light Column in Marine Parade

Response received, “Street Lighting have advised that they have made a structural and electrical assessment of the column and found that it presents no danger to the public. The column will be replaced when resources allow, we are unable to provide a specific date at this time.”


The chair- Referring to a statement from the Scottish Government accepting the need to give local authorities the powers to implement a locally determined Transient Visitor Levy or Tourist Tax shortly to be consulted on, asked Councillor Reid if this extra income if applied would go directly to each relevant local council to help fund local services. This was confirmed by Councillor Reid. 


Planning :- None.

Marine Parade Rails :- Painting still to be completed..

Treasurers Report :- No current report available at this time . Hopefully, Jimmy will be in attendance at our next meeting with an update. 

Woodland Walk:-The Community Council are moving forward with A & B Early Years Re. outdoor play area and will update progress at next meeting.

AOCB :- Tom Law reported that all patients seeking urgent medical attention can now go directly to the casualty dept. at Dunoon General without having to be referred in the first instance via NHS 24.

The Chair reported the welcome news that our local post office has now reopened and with full P.O. counter facilities resuming on 2ndSeptember. We wish the new proprietor continued success for the future.

The Chair would also take this opportunity to remind all our residents that forthcoming Community Council by-elections will be held shortly. Timetable as follows:
