Protesters and Marine Harvest must both compromise


Thank you for setting before us, via your letters page, the two sides of the argument about Marine Harvest’s plans for the Gauldrons.

I find myself a bit conflicted, to be honest. I would hate to see the Gauldrons spoiled, and I think this development would do that.

On the other hand, I sympathise with those who point to the jobs that would be created and the upside for the Kintyre economy.

Paul Featherstone says if Marine Harvest doesn’t get its planning permission it will move its whole operation away from Kintyre.

When I worked in education, we used to call that sort of thing ‘bullying’. But why does it have to be ‘all or nothing’?

It must be possible for Marine Harvest to find some way of mitigating the worst impacts of its proposals, or even to find a less sensitive site within the Lossit area. Cannot the protesters and the company get together and try to find some sort of compromise? Or will the ‘all or nothing’ bullying tactics of an aggressive multi-national succeed?
