Dawnfresh application to enlarge the new trout farm site at Taynuilt

In 2013 -2014 the community around Loch Etive fought long and hard to prevent a new huge fish farm site being added to Loch Etive. The council sadly decided to ignore the community feeling and approved the application.

During the process Dawnfresh reduced the size of the site, and assured repeated community questions that they would not be seeking to extend it in the future .. less than two years later .. here is the application that illustrates how hard it is to believe the company.
