Friends of the Sound of Jura

The Friends of the Sound of Jura is a new community group based in Knapdale, mid-Argyll, an area bounded on three sides by the sea. The group coalesced to object to a fish farm proposal being suddenly imposed, in an inappropriate place where it would harm marine life and the community. They soon realised how rare it is for the opinions of coastal people to be heard or given due weight in the planning process. As a result, the group now intends to inform and help their local community to express its opinions and to campaign more widely for marine conservation and the sustainable use of the sea we all share.
