Our Alternative

Dumgal Against Pylons has always accepted that there is a need for electricity transmission but it is our strong contention that there is a better and less damaging way than was proposed by SPEN (who are currently re-thinking their plans).

We have prepared a detailed alternative proposal that meets current and future needs of the residents and businesses of Dumfries and Galloway as well as transmission requirements from and through the region.  It would not result in the damage to the scenery, tourism, lifestyles and general well-being that would be an inevitable consequence of the implementation of SPEN’s plans.

You can read the full plan here or a summary of the plan here.
