A consortium of journalists is being set up to look at the Sutherland Space Hub. We call it “Eolas” which means “knowledge” in Irish. We have a repository of information from the Freedom of Information which we are happy to give access to under syndicate rules. We are creating relationships with a number of newspapers and you can submit your own stories about it.
This section of the site is dedicated to the development of the proposed Space Hub for Sutherland. On 31st August 2019 the press release below was distributed at The Ferret Summer Gathering. Scotland do not seem to be very concerned about Green issues at all. More to follow on that. Join us and follow what is going on.
“There is a great concern that there is secrecy around the proposal for the Sutherland Space Hub and robust and accurate information is not getting into the public domain. Tina lived and worked in Scotland for 16 years and is well versed with the way public services work, and that there is no cohesion between the bodies. Highlands and Islands Enterprise are responsible for overseeing the project, with no experience of such an important installation which will have huge social and environmental impacts.
With this in mind, it has been recommended to the Scottish Government that there should be a moratorium on the project until a full public consultation and assessment has been carried out by an independent body.”
