Well, the last few days of the Linfairn campaign saw an immense push and those final objections literally came flooding in! We don’t have the official count, but there are believed to be over 3000 individual objections that made it to the Energy Consents Unit by Monday 11th November! A huge thank you to everybody who took the time to make their feelings known – for a community the size of Straiton to see such support has provided a fantastic boost to this campaign and has really impressed politicians, fellow campaigners, and the local media.
Some of the committee went up to Glasgow on Monday to personally hand over thousands of objections, along with professional material prepared by our Noise, Landscape and Planning experts, as well as supplementary objection material prepared by SSfS. We have put those documents online now so you can see everything in black and white. Have a good read, it is our opinion that these documents speak for themselves in terms of where this application should be heading…
Landscape assessment – Mark Steele
Landscape assessment – Appendix
Noise report – Dick Bowdler
Planning opinion – Ian Kelly
Supplementary objection submission – SSfS
Visit Straiton – Objection
There will be a bit of a wait now as all the statutory consultees have to prepare their own responses to the application, but we will keep feeding back information as it becomes available. This is only the beginning, there is still a big hill to climb, but we’ve certainly made a cracking start thanks to all your fantastic support.
