The planned net wash plant at Toft has been torn apart by the council's own development team, (see Shetnews article). The plan breaks nearly every rule in the book. However I'm told by the planning company involved that these problems may be overcome during the forthcoming couple of weeks. The final decision has yet to be made. Looking at the report, available on the council planning website, (search 2019/054/ppf ), I fail to see how the major issues itemised here can be sidelined. The householders will still be there, the noise and smell from the plant, the traffic issues, etc. However, the rich and powerful often seem to get their way eventually, this needs to be knocked on the head as soon as possible. There is a petition in most of the small local shops, if you care about the environment, the householders with so much to lose, and the peace and quiet while waiting for the north isles ferry, please help us out here and sign this plan to history.
Can someone help? I'm moving up in 3 weeks (possibly 4 weeks). I have a horse that will be moving up with me. I'm using Eric Gillies to get her from Buckinghamshire to Aberdeen. Then she will go on the ferry and be in the care of the ferry all the way to Lerwick. She needs to be collected from the ferry in Lerwick, taken off, and taken to Yell which is where my land is (Sellafirth). At this point, I don't know if I'll be up a day or two before, or a day or two after, her arrival... I'm desperately trying to find someone who can collect her and watch over her (on their land temporarily). If I'm already on my land, I can meet her with the person at Lerwick and take her straight to my home. I don't have the licence or vehicle to take her myself. I've tried contacting Shetland Equestrian Centre three times but have had no replies. I'm so worried that I won't be able to bring her up... Does anyone know anyone who might be able to help?? She is a heavy 16.2hh Percheron mare. Insured under BHS Gold and fully passported. She is being wormed in a week. I would pay for fuel, time, etc etc.
I want to build a simple shelter for my horses that really does not cost the earth as I am on an incredibly limited budget for the next few months. I have the remnants (half wall height) of an old rock pig/store barn. Small but enough to have my horses stand in. They do this already to keep their legs out of the wind to give them some protection. I'm wanting to put posts along it on the inside or outside of this thing and then put corregated metal up to form an A shape which'll provide some decide protection when they want it. To keep the metal up in this shape, I'm thinking I'll need an A-frame along the building? The problem I have is that I am not good at DIY except putting basic posts in (dig a hole and fill it) and A-frames can mount the cost up. I'm going to try and price up what I need and see if anyone on Yell is willing to help me for a bit of cash-in-hand. Does anyone have any suggestions as to cheap alternatives? Just incase I can't make this option happen. Thanks x
I have a 3 year old sony vaio laptop. It was powered down working on Thursday, and when switched on on Friday it sounds like it is coming on but the screen remains blank. You can hear the hard drive spinning and fan going from time to time, lights flicker. But not the usual beeps windows makes when booting. I hvae tried an extenal monitor and it is blank also, no input detected. I fear it is a deeper problem. So, has anybody had similar problem? Did you get it sorted? And is there any readers who would be able to have a look at it? Let me know dear shetlinkers.
