Eilean Eisdeal: Eilean Eisdeal Projects - ‘Rush and Gush’ Survey

Application to the Coastal Communities Fund

Further to the results and findings of the ‘Rush n Gush’ consultation Eilean Eisdeal put forward an application to the Coastal Communities Fund in May 2014.

You can now view this below. The consultation results clearly showed that the current waste/recycling provision for Easdale is unacceptable to many and there is a need for more formalised storage. A first stage application has been made and if successful would allow us to improve access to the island and formalise the area of land known as the ‘Rush n Gush’. Communication with Argyll and Bute Council Planning Dept regarding this matter is ongoing.

The funding would be used for the installation of a slipway and pontoon, upgrading the track into the Rush 'n' Gush, installation of hard standing to create a designated area for recycling and waste facilities, purchase of containers for storage and work areas and the installation of services into the Rush 'n' Gush.
