Dumfries and Galloway MP Russell Brown has asked local people to give a “final push” for signatures for his wind farm petition as it enters its final week.
The petition is set to run until Monday, October 1, and can be signed online at www.russellbrownmp.com/windfarmpetition or in Russell Brown’s office in Dumfries or Stranraer.
It was started because of increasing concern that the Scottish government is forcing more and more wind farms onto Dumfries and Galloway, against the wishes of local people.
Mr Brown said: “The response to my wind farm petition has been phenomenal. It has really struck a chord with local people who are fed up of the Scottish government running roughshod over local views.
“Now the petition is in its final week, I am asking local people to give a final push to gather as many signatures as possible. If there are any friends, relatives or colleagues who haven’t yet added their names, now is the time to get them involved. You can sign online at my website or download a paper copy.
“I would also like to remind everyone with a paper to copy to return them to my office in Dumfries by October 1.
“In the next few weeks I will be presenting my petition to the Scottish government. We need as many names as possible signed up so we make it impossible for them to ignore us.”
