Back in December we held our AGM. Bill Steven, retired from the Chair but is still active on the Committee, we would like to thank him for all the hard work he has put in over the past years, his enthusiasm, engaging personality and exceptional public speaking skills have been invaluable. Stepping up to the Chair is Lala Burchal-Nolan, again an excellent and inspiring speaker with an incisive mind and, what’s more, she can speed read – a useful skill when going through thousands of pages of developers’ applications.
Sadly we are also losing Jonathan Meuli; web builder extraordinaire and multi-talented intellectual (writer, editor, artist, photographer and expert communicator). He constructed this site, creating the ‘feel’ and tone of the pages, working through the nights uploading an enormous amount of content through which our readers can become informed and come to their own conclusions. We hope we can do justice to all your hard work. Thank you.
Also stepping down are Whirly Marshall and Joanna Clapton who have become experts in all things Planning. They have studied each application with forensic detail and put together some compelling objections which has taken many, many hours of work for which we are all very grateful. Fortunately they are still helping in the background with forming our objections to Linfairn and Knockskae proposals.
Since the meeting we have welcomed Tom Dowman and Sandy Millar on to the Committee and we are confident they will make an invaluable contribution to the campaign.

Since the meeting we know that Mark Gibson of Craigengillan has lodged a petition for a Judicial Review into Dersalloch after East Ayrshire inexplicably withdrew at the 11th hour.
I agree, we have a lot of people to thank for getting us this far in our fight against the wind farms.
