In June this year we learned that the plans for a massively polluting coal-fired power station on the SSSI at Hunterston had been dropped. This was a great victory for the environment and public campaigning. We need to ensure North Ayrshire Council safeguard this important wildlife site for the future.

North Ayrshire Council has opened a consultation on a revised Local Development Plan. We are pleased that mention of the coal-fired power station has been removed, but unfortunately other development proposals still threaten the SSSI and the important wildlife within it. We need you to take action and write to North Ayrshire Council expressing your concern that this site, which is protected for its special wildlife, has been earmarked for development.
