A public "e-petition" is calling on the Scottish Parliament
"to urge the Scottish Government to convene an inquiry to consider the process for consenting onshore and offshore renewable energy generating stations and whether the process achieves an adequate cost/benefit and planning developments/environment balance, particularly for those in rural communities and whether its energy and planning policies compete against local communities priorities for land and landscape conservation, tourism and public recreation."
It was raised by Tessa Packard on behalf of Black Mountain Farms, Faccombe Estates, Horseupcleugh Estate, Burncastle Estate, Cranshaws and Longformacus Community Councils. If you choose to sign you will find it takes very little time. Link
