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.
