David Stewart MSP

MSP in bid to save Monarch Country from Pylons

In a Holyrood debate this evening over the Beauly to Denny powerline, Highlands and Islands Regional Labour MSP David Stewart will call on Inquiry Reporters to be even handed when considering the evidence.

He says the concerns of our local communities, authorities and the National Park on the impact of 65m pylons on the environment, on tourism and on the economy must not be disregarded.

In favour of renewables, Mr Stewart believes we must consider all aspects of our legacy to the next generation.

“Commercial concerns should not be the focus in this case.

“Pylons must not be built through the Cairngorm National Park, it was created to protect the very environment that this scheme threatens.

“There is a real argument that a sub sea cable is more appropriate or at the very least there should be undergrounding on sections of the line to avoid unsightly pylons running through a countryside that people travel from all around the world to see,” he said.
