The Scottish Planning & Regulatory Authorities Must Step Up To Protect Southannan Sands SSSI & The Communities That Surround Hunterston PARC

Following the publication of Peel Ports’ 20 Year Master Plan we have written to all the Scottish planning, regulatory and licensing authorities, along with local and national elected representatives, to tell them that the Friends of the Firth of Clyde (FOFOC) hold them responsible for the protection of Southannan Sands Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and the health and wellbeing of surrounding communities that will live the wider consequences of the development of Hunterston PARC for generations to come.

We also sent them a copy of the excellent response from West Kilbride Community Council which clearly articulates numerous issues of concern.

You can read both the FOFOC and West Kilbride Community Council letters in full below:

We encourage all our supporters to keep reminding elected, planning, regulatory and licensing officials of their moral and statutory responsibilities to safeguard our local communities and protect the precious natural environment from reckless profiteering by Peel Ports.
