As you may be aware, SSfS received an extension for the Keirs Hill representation (well there was a lot to say about it!). This ensured that there was plenty of time to enlist the help of Landscape consultant Mark Steele, as well as pull our own objection together. These were submitted to the ECDU on Friday (7th Feb), and the documents are now available online for you to view. We have also included the submission from VisitStraiton, which we hope you’ll agree makes good reading!
Unfortunately Glenmount is in full flow, so no time to dwell on Keirs Hill. Developers RWE npower have already been giving us a bit of a headache, and that’s before their 36,000 vehicle journeys get near us! Both the Community Council and SSfS, following a lot of concern from local residents asked for a public meeting to be held so people could raise their own issues and hear what they had to say. RWE responded to this by selectively inviting some residents to an ‘appointment only’ discussion on Friday 14th February. This is far from ideal given most people on the route would have been unaware about the invitation. If anyone would still like to try to get an appointment, RWE can be contacted on 0845 717700 or emailed Glenmount@npower-renewables.com.
Failing that, however RWE have now agreed to hold a further drop in session in the McCandlish Hall on Tuesday 18 February between 4pm and 7pm (they really don’t want people to turn up at the same time do they?!). It is imperative that anybody to has concerns or questions about the proposal to try and make it along to the drop in session and make sure you get all the answers you are looking for. RWE have provided a traffic management plan which has some basic information so please have a look prior to going along just to give you a feel for what they are proposing.
