“A charity that aims to preserve and protect a Highland sea loch has had a legal challenge against a local authority’s decision to grant approval for a new fish farm dismissed.”

“In a written opinion, Lord Burns said: “The council have decided to rationalise fish farming activity by the grant of planning permission for Etive 6 and the terms of the section 75 agreement. I am unable to conclude that those decisions are illegal, ultra vires or in any way unreasonable. It is not for this court to interfere in the exercise of the planning authority’s discretion in this regard.””
