COMMUNITY councils will meet tomorrow night (Thursday) to decide how compensation can be claimed from the operators of the Mossmorran Petro-chemical complex.
The community councils representing the towns and villages surrounding the Mossmorran Petro-Chemical Complex have been invited to a meeting to discuss how a compensation claim could be made.
Fife Council agreed to get involved in trying to set up a mechanism whereby compensation could be obtained from the operators of the Fife Ethylene Plant and Shell NGL facility and the outcome will be the meeting for community council representatives from Crossgates, Hill of Beath, Cowdenbeath, Kelty, Lumphinnans, Benarty, Cardenden and Auchtertool, on Thursday January 30 at 7pm at the Maxwell Centre. Also involved will be the community councils from South Fife, near the Braefoot Bay terminal.
Cowdenbeath and Kelty councillor, Alex Campbell, has been pushing the local authority to get something organised to discuss the compensation issue and is delighted that the meeting has been called.
He said: “I genuinely feel that these communities have been short changed due to the years of impact from the complex and something needs to be done.
“Perhaps a community pot such as the Windfarm operations could be appropriate.”
Fife Council has organised the meeting and hope that every community council will be represented.
