RDS "EAGER" FOR FEEDBACK ON HELICOPTER PROJECT
Treso owner Robert Dorrien-Smith has said that he hopes as many people as possible will attend Friday’s public consultation on the proposed new helicopter service.
A similar event has already taken place in Penzance and a planning application is to be submitted later this month.
Robert told This is Scilly: “At this stage the plans are not written in stone and we are very eager to get feedback from islanders, so I do hope as many as possible will take the time to drop in and see us tomorrow and find out more about this exciting project.
"For islanders, resilient transport links to and from the mainland are absolutely vital for our economy, but also for our very way of life.
“Everything we do – from travelling on business to going on holiday, seeing family on the mainland to attending medical appointments – relies on having resilient and reliable transport links.
“This project is all about making Scilly a better place to visit – but also a better place to live. We want to give the islands back a third transport option; something that will create a long term benefit for all of the islands – and those who call them home.”
The consultation will take place at the Wesleyan Chapel on St Mary’s between 12.30pm and 3pm.
