Expansion fears


As many residents will already be aware, and as previously reported in The Banner, the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) intends to approve a 62 per cent increase in the capacity of St Molios fish farm in Lamlash Bay despite receiving numerous objections on environmental grounds.

This will mean a corresponding increase in fish excrement and chemical treatments going straight into one of our most popular bays.

The Community of Arran Seabed Trust (COAST), Arran Community Council, Lamlash Bay Improvements and others have all now written to the new cabinet secretary, Roseanna Cunningham, requesting that she calls in and rejects this application. We have been informed that she will make her decision by December 7.
