Friends of the Firth of Clyde Formal Response To Peel Ports’ 20 Year Master Plan

On 28th June 2019 Peel Ports concluded their 6 week consultation on the ’20 Year Master Plan for Hunterston PARC.

We mobilised on a number of fronts by leafletting residents, conducting our own survey ; numerous supporters attended the public exhibitions in Fairlie and Milport and we concluded by sending daily emails to local councillors in the week running up to the North Ayrshire Council (NAC) Planning Meeting at which NAC’s formal response was to be agreed.

Below you can read the our formal written response on the 20 Year Master Plan sent to Peel Ports on 28th June 2019:

FOFOC Response to Peel Consultation 28June2019

Soberingly, we submit our response in the week that Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) recommend that Menie links be removed from an existing site of special scientific interest (SSSI) as the controversial Trump golf course within which they are sited has damaged and “destroyed” one of the best examples of moving sand dunes in Britain, developed over 4,000 years.

A sincere thank you to everyone for your continued support and commitment to protect Southannon Sands SSSI and safety and wellbeing of the surrounding communities.

  1. A very considered, honest response to a proposal which has great potential for harm to our fragile marine and social environments.

    1. Thanks for your support Hugh, we will continue to hold Peel Ports and the planning & regulatory authorities to account.
