Sn letters - letter at Shetlandnews.
Back in April 2015, former vice chairman of Sustainable Shetland, James Mackenzie, was invited to give a presentation to a Planning Democracy event in Glasgow. Among other things, the conference explored options for a more equitable planning system, including the idea of equal rights of appeal to create a level playing field that allows communities the same rights as developers. Mackenzie has now submitted his presentation as a letter to Shetland News, saying “not much has changed since then [2015] except that SSE is now the sole owner of Viking Energy”.
The focus on building a 600Megawatt subsea cable is preventing investment in local renewable energy projects, writes James Mackenzie, the outgoing vice-chairman of Sustainable Shetland, the grassroots group that opposes the Viking Energy wind farm.
