Comment posted Crown Estate Commissioners hang on like limpets to Scottish rights by jenny meade.
I’m looking forward to a continuation of the story. I must admit when I formulated a reply to the Crown estate Consultation on behalf of the Scottish Islands Federation, which is available in full as a book and as far as I know online, the conclusion I drew is that although the Crown estate where perhaps not fully transparent, the formation of an independent Scottish advisory board to act according to Existing Scottish law on behalf of Scottish people. I mean people who are perhaps retired but who have a great knowledge of the various subjects to be considered, particularly maritime affairs, but who are independent of businesses. In September the Scottish Islands Federation (SIF) are hosting the AGM of the European Small Islands Network (ESIN) on Mull so we could gather together information on how it’s done elsewhere. The independent islands seem to be more empowered. Unfortunately local authorities have often disempowered local coastal inhabitants.

- SSE’s record breaking efforts for Kintyre and Arran
Well we had 4 days without power on Bute last winter, and now Arran. At the AGM of the Scottish Islands Fed. on Mull last Sept. we had a work shop/discussion with Community Energy Scotland. One of the suggestions was that local power generation systems should have an option of closing off from the grid if necessary so that the power could be used locally. Sounds very sensible to me.Perhaps micro-generation and storage or PV operated systems should be encouraged. Nano technology or fibre optics could be employed. Just a pity that it’s always the large companies that have to take control of theses options. If there are any engineers out there who could offer feasible suggestions we would like to hear from them.

Knocking down the walls sounds the best idea. Also renaming the rooms is an option.Make sure you have a lounge, a dining room, and a study before you start to count bedrooms.The list could be longer with imagination.

Shouldn’t that have been YES THEY ARE STILL DIRECTORS OF SPFA?
I wonder what their legal requirements as company directors are? I would have thought they would have to stand down, or the SPFA should be publicly discredited.
