Sir, - The 30 or so businesses supporting the offshore wind turbine development opposed by the RSPB are correct and justified only in that Fife and the wider areas of east-central Scotland desperately need more jobs and local supply-chain activities.
The Scottish Government has announced an additional £1.5 million investment in the development of offshore wind production in a bid to stimulate innovation in the sector.
Work from the Queensferry Crossing, the dualling of the A9 from Perth to Inverness and Aberdeen’s new bypass have all proven a tonic in tough times.
Contractors for one of the giant North Sea windfarm projects halted by a RSPB legal objection have called on the Scottish Government to urgently examine how the venture can be revived.
A multi billion pound investment in four major wind farms off Scotland's east coast could be dead in the water following a devastating court judgement.
