The convener of a community council has told the public inquiry into Dart Energy’s proposals to build a coal bed methane extraction plant near Airth it was disappointed at their efforts to keep them informed.
At the start of the sixth day of the inquiry before Scottish Government reporters, Mr Eric Appelbe of Larbert, Stenhousemuir and Torwood Community Council, said it had repeatedly asked Dart for details of its planning application to Falkirk Council.
He said: “We had concerns about the impact Dart’s plans for Letham Moss could have on the community and environment. We felt its consultation process was ineffective and we needed more information. Dart refused our invitation to meet so we arranged a leaflet drop across the area to help make the communities aware of what was happening.”
