NoGasificationPlantThe campaign against the proposed developed of a gasification plant by WH Malcolm at their South Street site has been moving very slowly.

Scotstoun Community Council recently received a letter from Bill Kidd, the MSP for Glasgow Anniesland, with a copy of a letter from Kevin Stewart the Minister for Housing and Local Government, who will be making the final decision, about the timescales (see letters below.)

WH Malcolm submitted an appeal to the Scottish Government in May and this was followed by a site visit by the appointed reporter in early July and they had indicated a decision would be made by the end of the summer.

However there has been no decision to date and in October the Scottish Minister’s called the decision in the letter below indicates that the report will be submitted to the Minister early in the New Year and they hope a decision will be reached by April 2017! We will keep you updated on progress.

You can see the letters below and you can view all blogs related to the campaign here
