Alexander Lough,

SEPA HAVE ALLOWED A LARGE CAMPSITE KNOWN AS THURSTON MANOR TO DISHARGE SEWAGE INTO A SMALL RIVER CALLED THE DRYBURN THIS I HAVE CAUGHT ON CAMERA,WE SENT IT TO SARAH BOYACK THINKING SHE COULD HAVE THIS INVESTIGATED,SHE SAID THAT SHE COULD NOT DO ANYTHING BECAUSE IT WAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HER,SHE ADVISED ME TO MAKE CONTACT WITH CLAUDIA BEAMISH,IM STILL WAITING ON A REPLY,I FIND THIS ALL RATHER CONFUSING,WHY CANT SARAH BOYACK LOOK INTO IT,THIS IS A NATIONAL ISSUE AND THEREFOR IT MUST BE RAISED IN HOLYROOD IF THIS IS THE WAY OUR POLITICS ARE GOING THEN GOD HELP US.

Alexander Lough,

I dont think SEPA have any power,its just a set up to kid the people on,they should sack all of these quangoes we dont need them.we are all led to believe that they are looking after our health and the environment,if they had the power they would have closed down the cement works run by LAFARGE at DUNBAR.
WE HAVE CAUGHT ALL OF THE INCIDENTS OF POLLUTION AS IT HAPPENS,I HAVE IT ALL ON CAMERA AND I KEEP WRITTEN DAILY RECORDS OF THE TIMES AND DATES,i also have folders of the replies from SEPA they tell us nothing about the incidents,they dont even know how the wind blows in my reports,i have graphs they sent us and i had to point out to them that they were wrong with the reply on the incident i reported,this has to stop,SEPA are putting big business first and our lives at risk!!!WHY?

Alexander Lough,

SEPA has the power but choose not to implement them,why dont they do something to justify what they stand for,its criminal how they let these big companies of the hook.

Alexander Lough,

iT SO HAPPENS THAT THE SNH TOOK THE SAME DECISSION HERE IN THE EAST LAMMERMUIRS,OUR HISTORY OLD AND ANCIENT HAS BEEN DESTROYED ALL BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO MINE THE LIMESTONE RESERVE IN OUR ONCE RECOGNISED NATURE CONSERVANCY SITE,ITS ALL GONE NOW. INFACT THE FAULT LIES WITH THE RSPB SNH HISTORIC SCOTLAND. WHAT MADE THEM AGREE TO SUCH A DEVASTATING POLICY,THEY MUST HAVE BEEN OFFERED CARROTS THAT THEY COULD NOT REFUSE.

Is Gemmell going to do the honourable thing and resign? Give someone with a real passion the chance to perform, c'mon, you've had your shot, failed and made many staff miserable in the process! The chairman and the entire directorate should also take a hike as the Agency appears to be able to mismanage everything it touches - the evidence is there for all to see, just ask my colleagues. Scotland and its residents need their environment protected yet all they get from SEPA are erroneous statistics and words that try convince them so. We don't buy it.

SNH withdrew their objection and allowed planning permission to go ahead for an incinerator on green belt land in the heart of prime and productive agricultural land. The site is 200m from Cander Moss SSI and within close proximity of the Cander and Avon Gorge SAC. Why are these official bodies not doing the job they are set up to do and protecting Scotlands Heritage?
SEPA are now considering the PPC permit for the same development, bearing in mind that Scotgen Dumfries [the developers sister company] has already been named by SEPA as one of Scotlands worst polluters and have over 600 breaches to their operating licence! Do SEPA really have the powers to protect the Scottish public and the enviroment?
