Siccar Point – our objection to the proposed pipeline development

We have submitted a letter of objection  to to the planning application lodged with Scottish Borders Council for the “Installation of pump house and associated works for effluent discharge, Drysdale Old Cambus Cockburnspath”.

We are concerned about many aspects of this proposed development, including (1) the visual impact of the pipeline particularly during installation and on the steep, grass covered slope above the beach, (2) the environmental impact of discharging effluent directly adjacent to Siccar Point, and (3) the loss of economic opportunity from potential developments of local industry that could meet the needs of visitors to Siccar Point.
