Scottish & Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) are holding a consultation event in Kirkwall on Wednesday 6 February, at [location]
We encourage you to attend to this consultation to air your views on the project. Orkney Heritage Society have made it clear in previous posts that the planned works show a wilful disregard for the landscape in which the people of Orkney live. We feel that he overriding concern of the developers has been to keep costs to an absolute minimum regardless of visual impact on the environment.
In addition OHS are concerned that previous consultations and presentations by SSEN have shown minimal information, misleading graphical representations of visual impact of the proposals, and little in the way of genuine consultation with the local population.
