Campaigners launch Dalmally pylon protest

CAMPAIGNERS in Dalmally have launched a petition opposing a ‘monstrous’ plan to install 25, 150-foot tall pylons near the village.

The structures would be twice as high as the 29 pylons already there, prompting fears they could cause cancer.

Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) plans to reinforce the transmissions network in north Argyll, including a new overhead cable linking the substation in Stronmilchan with a new substation near Cladich. SSEN is consulting communities around Dalmally, Kilchrenan, Portsonachan and Taynuilt next week on the proposed location of the new Creag Dhubh substation and the alignment of the new 275kV power line connecting Creag Dhubh and Dalmally.
