In August 2018 the Trust objected to three of seven proposed hydro schemes in the Glen Etive area following an assessment that they would detract from Wild Land Area 9 that is afforded significant protection in Scottish planning policy.

Two of the seven planning applications for hydro-electric schemes in Glen Etive have recently been resubmitted by the developer.

The Trust will be following-up and submitting new comment as appropriate and would encourage others to do likewise. 

Comments can be made up to 6 January 2019 on the Highland Council website. Read more of the detail and see our objections here
