I remain unconvinced about the merits of the scheme. Earlier this week I was raising concerns about air quality in the city and I think there is no way that the biomass plant wouldn't have a detrimental impact on air quality in the city. I also worry about the wider environmental impact of the proposals and whether the fuel would really be from sustainable sources.
After the council's decision back in June the ball is now firmly in Forth Energy's court. They need to tell the Scottish Government whether they are going to appeal or not. I am surprised that they have not made a clear decision before now and I am calling on them to make a clear decision so that the people of Dundee can have clarity about the way forward.
I think that Forth Energy should make up their minds sooner rather than later for the sake of the people of Dundee and let us know what they plan to do.
