In the news

I wanted to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for the key role you played when giving evidence to the Court. When I did the same it definitely didn’t feel like just another day at the office. Despite this you performed with aplomb and the result reflects the highly professional approach you took. The evidence you gave was of course the distillation of months of economic studies and evidence building. Given the successful planning determination, defence of the same in a JR, review by the Scottish Government and now a successful Land Court outcome your work has stood the test of some exceptional scrutiny. It was of course on this test that your EIA was so crucial to demonstrate. So, thank you for all your inputs to the Court, it is greatly appreciated by all of us here at HIE.
