The Stornoway congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses plan to build a new church.

The proposed Kingdom Hall would be sited on Perceval Road, facing the rear of the Dun Eisdean care home.

The new place of worship would be close to the Culregrein Mission House where the Stornoway Reformed Presbyterian Church meet.

The present Kingdom Hall is located above a block of shops in Church Street. The group has met there since 1958.

A bid for full planning permission for the new hall plus carpark has been lodged to Western Isles Council.

Four people have made representations supporting the development while one objection has been submitted.

The Comhairle's environmental health department expresses concerns over the potential for noise and dust during the construction phase though it is understood this could be managed by imposing conditions.

The council is considering the planning application.
