Siccar Point pipeline goes ahead

The Forum are disappointed that Scottish Borders Council have given permission for the construction of an effluent disposal pipeline directly adjacent to Siccar Point, despite the high level of objections from across the world and concerns expressed by bodies such as the British Geological Survey and the Geological Society of London, among many others.

Constraints have been imposed by the Planning Department that we hope will mitigate some of the visual impact of the pipeline route down an unstable slope and across the rock platform. The next stage of the process, granting of a discharge licence by SEPA, needs to ensure a high standard of construction and operation to protect the marine environment and the shoreline.
