  • Warranted Ironside Farrar have done the best they can with what they have…’a number of scenarios based on guess work’. Unless SPR start communicating with us all we will not know what is happening until it is too late for us to realise we have a say !! This continuing lack of open consultation with the community should have been added as a footnote & major failing of the document.

    To think SPR do not have business models and a plan for each scenario is naïve, they and the relevant government agencies have been gathering information specific to renewables for up to 5 years before the Crown Estates announced that they had offered the lease.

    The initial ‘Tiree Array’ work group did exactly the same work for free, no real expansion on the facts we had way back when…ask any of them.
    The document is a weak expression of ‘possibility’ and to have commissioned a report to tell us this is, well, daft….
    all of this information could quite easily have been captured in a ten column xl spread sheet with two cover pages (and I dare say apart from the cut and paste this is what was used)…and this could have been done by a 6th form work group at the school and as a project. They would also have managed to format it correctly, remove the 30% that is repeat information…and hopefully have been paid for it too (?)
    How much and who paid for this ?
