Any large scale OHL must be considered alongside the generation it serves.
There is no pressing need for this OHL.
Dissected, unconnected decision making is contrary to the interests of the populations of Skye and Scotland.
If decisions are made in silos, apart from one another, cumulative impacts will inevitably be considered to have a lesser importance than they deserve.
Decision making which depends on developer progress with individual applications is inefficient, which will inevitably lead to poor quality disaggregated results for the Isle of Skye.
A Public Inquiry to consider the OHL and the windfarms proposed for Skye is the solution.
The landscape and environment as we currently know it on Skye looks set to change forever with the advent of industrial scale windfarms in the next 5-7 years. To date, there have been consultation events held on the island by the commercial wind development companies to provide some information on these developments, but it is difficult for islanders to find information to help them understand the bigger picture and the implications for the future of the Isle of Skye.
This website has been designed to act as a centralised information point for islanders to obtain information on the bigger picture containing some background information and also links to other sources of data.
