"The wrong plan in the wrong place"

A packed meeting in the West Church Hall this evening heard an update on protests against the ship-to-ship oil transfer application by Cromarty Firth Port Authority. Cromarty & District Community Council Chair Jacqui Ross presented a summary of action to date including the creation of working group Cromarty Rising, the submission of a petition organised by 38 Degrees, press coverage in newpapers, radio and social media, letter campaign, engagement of legal firm Bindmans LLP and fundraising. Prof. Paul Thompson spoke on environmental concerns raised by the application, and management consultant Arthur Bird summarised legal steps taken so far.

The decision regarding the granting of a license will be made by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency under the sponsorship of the Department of Transport.
