How to Object

There are several ways you can exersice your right to object to the application and there a number of things that can help making your protestation have greater influence.
 
Firstly, however you decide to express your view, concerns, objections or simply voice a constructive opinion, to whom ever you chose to contact, make sure you keep a copy of it.
 
It is also a good idea to send a copy of your correspondence to your locally elected representatives; Community Council, Councillor, MSP, MP and even your MEP, and in your covering correspondence make sure you ask for confirmation that they have received it as well as what they intend to do about the content of your communication with them.
CRAG would also be happy to receive a copy in order to accurately gauge and collate the community response.
