In March 2021, North Ayrshire Council Planning Committee unanimously refused the Scottish Salmon Company's application for a salmon farm off the north east coast of Arran at Millstone Point. There was masss community opposition to this farm, which would have spoiled one of Arran's truly wild and tranquil coastlines.
A month of public consultation has closed; we expect North Ayrshire Planning Committee to meet in early 2021 to discuss the application.
On 9th October 2020 the Scottish Salmon Company submitted their revised planning application for a proposed development off Millstone Point to North Ayrshire Council. Comments have been invited by members of the public and here we provide a briefing note for those wishing to respond.
On Saturday 17th August 2019 the Scottish Salmon Company submitted their planning application for a new development off Millstone Point to North Ayrshire Council. As members of the public, we have until 30th September 2019 to submit our comments.
COAST and many others have called for an immediate moratorium on expansion until the industry can prove that there is no risk to our health and the health of our ecosystem from its activities
