SSEN Orkney Project Consulation - Have your say - OHS Opinion Poll

There is more detail on the OHS response to SSEN's proposed project and reaction to consultation on our News page.

We have launched an online opinion poll on SSEN's Orkney Project. By clicking on this link you can enter your views via an opinion poll on the SSEN consultation exercise and also on the project itself. We will use the responses to ensure our representations remain well grounded. Please do use this system as it allows us to rapidly collate views. It should work on all devices and you can paste text into your reply if required.
