The Aarhus Covention and how the Scottish Government ignores it

Click for Details of the Aarhus Convention

The Aarhus Covention is  UN compliance standard that the EU, British Government and the devolved Scottish Adminstration are signed up to. However it is pretty obvious that they have totally ignored it, bypassing both the requirements of transparency and consultation and in fact implementation of the Directive. The recent selective pursuit of the GPWind routemap drives a coach and horses through the requirements. Replies from Fergus Ewing to Parliamentary Questions show a total lack of either understanding of the principles or intention to comply. Political targets over-ride the rule of law where Scottish Ministers are concerned.

A forthright and well crafted presentation has been produced by Christine Metcalfe, a Community Councillor of Avich & Kilchrenan Community Council in Argyle. Click here to study.


About Dougal Quixote

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.

    Really great and most important ‘stuff’ – thanks lots of lots Ms Metcalf & Dougal Q. for this posting! 🙂

    I’m distributing the pdf-file to the Swedish community of common-sensed people as we have just about the same, totally brainwashed, situation here in Sweden.

    Brgds from Sweden!
