We are pleased to announce that the North Coast and Cumbrae Joint Community Councils` have been invited to a Public Meeting to provide the opportunity for the communities of West Kilbride, Skelmorlie, Largs , Fairlie and Cumbrae to learn more about the serious concerns regarding Peel Ports plans to bring Oil Rig decommissioning to Hunterston Peninsula.
The public meeting is open to all and will take place on:
Thursday 21st February 2019, 7pm at Largs Academy Campus.
We want to encourage as many people as possible to attend. Please spread the word. If you are already concerned, uncertain or just plain indifferent this is a vital opportunity to learn more and ask questions about what is happening in your own backyard to threaten the environment of the Firth of Clyde for generations to come.
The following letter has been sent to all North Coast and Cumbrae Community Councillors by Rita Holmes, Chair of Fairlie Community Council.
Dear Community Councillors,
Largs Community Council, at the request of Friends of the Firth of Clyde, invites you to a meeting to better inform the public regarding Peel Ports Plans for Oil Rig Decommissioning at Hunterston Construction Yard.
The area to be developed lies within an important Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and on one of the most beautiful waterways in Northern Europe. It would be remiss of the North Coast and Cumbrae CC`s not to fully address these proposals. Proposals which have the potential to seriously damage our beautiful waterway, our environment and our tourism.
There will be an update on the parts played by North Ayrshire Council, the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, Scottish Natural Heritage and Marine Scotland in the process so far and an Environmental Presentation from Friends of the Firth of Clyde followed by a Q and A session.
We hope you will attend and let your communities know that this is open to everybody.
Best Regards Rita Holmes (Fairlie Community Council)
