Local MSP Writes To Finnie On NVZ Proposals

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has written to Rural Affairs Minister Ross Finnie on the latest proposals to introduce new rules in Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (NVZs). Currently, the whole of Banff & Buchan and large parts of Moray and Aberdeenshire are within the designated NVZs.

Mr Stevenson said:

“Already, concern has been put to me regarding these proposals and also the proposal to change the rules on storage capacity and periods for manures. I am disappointed that given the level of consultation which took place with farmers on these changes that the views expressed by farmers do not seem to have been taken on board. I have written to Ross Finnie seeking details of the scientific basis for these proposals, which seems to be sadly lacking at the moment.”
