Regarding the SSEN project...
I spoke to someone who's working on it & he said that the village (not an individual) should employ the services of a "Land Agent".... I've never heard of one before but apparently they know everything a village is entitled to...... He mentioned rent if a pylon is on your ground.... Access roads paid for..... Bridges if needed & a host of other things... they won't affect me where I am but it may help someone or help the village as a whole, maybe do something with the High St..... John J.

This may also be worth posting in both the Auchenblae Noticeboard and the Save our Mearns fb page?

What SSEN won’t do is compensate villagers for the loss of value in their homes, the loss of income for blighted business, they won’t make up for the lost tourism revenue, look after our environment and ecology or even gain permission to access land or observe bio security measures to prevent tracking disease from farm to farm. SSEN cannot replace the lost agricultural land so we risk food security. SSEN talk about community benefit whilst refusing to address the financial costs faced by many individuals in our community. There are alternative technologies which would impact less on our communities, ideally we would all be asking SSEN to come up with a better plan instead of accepting the destruction of our countryside.

If anyone is needing a land agent please PM me and I can put you in touch with someone.

Maybe class action rather than single owners? Kind of thing small settlements use to prevent or curtail housing developers? Probably the same as using a Land Agent. Perhaps worth asking if a whole village can form a cooperative to add more muscle??

Thought we were tryingvto stop the massive pylons not trying to make money from them, and trying to get companies to use underground lines instead??
