whalsa Posted November 24, 2015 Report Share Posted November 24, 2015 If this gentleman is not allowed to have planning permission because his customers would have to drive there, which is against local policy, how on earth did Sumburgh Lighthouse get planning permission to extend and have a shop when I don't know of any bus route to it and it is a very long walk to the lighthouse from the nearest house. Another seriously weak analogy, given Sumburgh Head is a site of significant natural heritage. People travel to see Sumburgh Head itself, of which the Visitor Centre (Lighthouse) is a part. It's not even close to the same as a restaurant. Yes hjasga but I think the point was HOW do they travel there? By vehicle. Judging by the outcry on social media and from conversations I have had with people personally this restaurant could well be a success, so what if people have to drive there? Most people have to drive everywhere any time they want to go anywhere in Shetland. As has been said before it would be interesting to know how many of the planning officials use public transport or walk/cycle everywhere they go!
